I am really happy with this coloring book (as I was with the book based on Sarah J. Maas “Throne of Glass" series.) The designs are beautifully done by a team of illustrators (Charlie Bowater, Adrian Dadich, Yvonne Gilbert, John Howe, and Craig Phillips.) While their styles differ and once again one artist in particular is quite different in style, each artist is tasked with a series of illustrations which brings a sense of cohesion to the whole book.
The 46 designs are based on the three books: “Court of Thorns and Roses”, “Court of Mist and Fury” and “Court of Wings and Ruin”. There is a quote from the book on the facing page of design so you know which book and which scene the design pertains to.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium.
46 A Court of Thorns and Roses Designs by five artists
Printed one side of page (with book excerpts on the back of the page)
Paper is heavy weight, white, ever so slightly rough, and perforated
Designs are printed beyond the perforations and merge into the binding. Nothing essential will be lost if you remove pages at the perforations.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper
Water-based markers, gel pens, and India ink pens did not bleed through the paper. Some gel pens require additional drying time.
Colored pencils worked really well with the paper. The slightly rough texture of the paper provided good tooth which allowed pigment to easily adhere to the page. I test both oil and wax based pencils and both worked well. I could layer the same color for deeper pigment, layer multiple colors and blend easily using a pencil style blender stick.
If I use alcohol-based markers with this style of book (printed one side of page) but I use a blotter page of card stock under my working page to keep ink from seeping through. I would suggest either using a blotter page or removing the coloring page from the book beforehand if you use alcohol-based markers.
Charlie Bowater's pages are fantastic!! She did an excellent job capturing my favorite book series. I haven't even bothered coloring the other pages in yet because compared to Charlie's pages they're just lackluster and disappointing.
