Fairyland

Just Add Color

Just ADD Color Fairyland is a great book for adults and older young adults. It's perfect for those who are just starting to color again and those who have really gotten into the craze like me. The book has 120 pages of great fairy inspired illustrations. What I liked a lot wast that the drawings include your more classic fairy's as well as some more modern renditions. The more modern ones are a bit sexy.

Layout: The layout of the book is in portrait view and it has good size pages. The pages are just under 8.5 inches wide and just under 11 inches tall. The pages are ready to be pulled out as the publisher has provided serrated pages. The one thing that I don't like is that the drawings double sided. So you have to choose what picture not to display unless you opt to photo copy it. Also this can easily lead to bleed through.

The drawing style for this book is bold. In most of the drawings the lines are thick black. Most drawings leave lots of open space, so don't expect lots of small spaces to color.

Age: I would say this book is intended for adults, but it would be great an adult to buy and then give out the pages to a child to draw. I have to say that around 10 or so of the drawings include some body parts that an adult would need to decide if a child is ready for...such as naked breasts.

Overall the books drawings are just striking. I had a really hard time choosing which one to start with first. I ended up choosing the fairy with leaf like wings. I can't wait to do more coloring in this book.
