The detail is incredible. I love coloring and while I have not had a chance to sit down and color in this book it calls to me every single day. Summer vacation is only a week away and I will be spending some of mine coloring in this book.
Each page is a fully detailed replicas such as this one from Helen Dryden that created for Vogue.
On the back of each page is the author's name and the month an year they drew it.
Aren't they fun? I can't wait to color this with my favorite gel pens.
Wendy also has a few boxes in the first two pages of the book so you can try out your markers, pencils and pens to make sure they don't bleed through the pages however she does suggest placing a piece of paper in between the pages when coloring.
