Who says that coloring books are for kids?
Certainly not my elder sister, who used to plop herself down with me, a bunch of Crayola crayons, and a Precious Moments coloring book. And those most definitely were precious moments.
Now, in The Time Garden, adults have the opportunity to revisit their glory days of coloring book coloring. This time, however, they do not have to follow color-the-number schemes or clear-cut outlines of Pluto and Mickey. Instead, they get to indulge themselves in the lush doodles of Daria Song, a Korean artist with creativity, flare, and attention to detail. Simply looking at the black-and-white pages without even lifting a colored pencil to the paper feels inspiring. And the depth of creativity with which Song approaches her work is phenomenal.
I recommend this book for adults who are young at heart or simply artistic by nature. It is a wonderful way to relax, to realize the beauty in the world around you, and to gather up some friends for quality friend time.
And when there remains no more white space in your coloring book, hope is not lost. Other books in this series include Enchanted Forest, Lost Ocean, and The Secret Garden., and each one of them is delightful.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
