Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings by acclaimed artist Amily Shen. Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring.
I suppose we all knew that it was just a matter of time before I dove head first into the magic that is coloring books for adults. As an adult (or so they say), I've never stopped coloring. I've always had a few coloring books and a few tons of crayons lying about for those especially stressful days. It's an easy and fairly inexpensive way to escape the chaos that is adult life and swap it for just a little bit of time as a child again.
When it comes to this particular book, it's perfect for those of us who may have graduated beyond the basic shapes and into more detailed drawings. Each drawing is its own work of art and when combined with a nice heavy paper, it makes for hours of relaxation and entertainment. After all, you're only as limited as you decide yourself to be! Who says Alice has to be the traditional blonde? Maybe she'd like to be a brunette for a while! The white rabbit? I think he'd be rather handsome with black spots!
As someone who colors multiple times a week, this is a book that I'm really looking forward to working my way through. Then, when I'm all done, I think I just might slip off the slipcover, flip it over, and color the gorgeous illustrations that are printed on the reverse. It's a shame that we no longer have a playroom. A finished version of that would be perfect to hang upon its walls!
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments, and opinions are my own.
