Attached is my silent and quick flip through video of the entire book of postcard designs. I hope it is of assistance to you.
I've recently started enjoying adult coloring books as a way to relieve stress and some of my favorite books are "Enchanted Forest" and "Secret Garden" by Johanna Basford. When I saw that "Enchanted Forest" was going to be available in postcards, I pre-ordered them immediately.
They just arrived and the images are lovely. They are smaller representations of some of my favorites from the book. There are 20 different images to have fun with. The images are much smaller and are a little more difficult to work with (at my age.) I plan to use my Dazor magnifying lamp to do the detail work and will probably use my Copic or Spectrum Noir Next Generation alcohol-based markers to get the type of detail I think I will want with these postcards.
Unlike the book (which has images on both sides of each page), the postcards have images on one side and the other side has spots for putting in address and comments to the individuals you send these to. That is, if you can bear to part with them. If not, they are a lovely little size to frame up and put into a collage on a wall. The cards are a much thicker and heavier weight than the regular books. I don't think there is much fear that gel pens/markers will leak through at this weight, I just want the alcohol pens as I can do really fine point work best with them.
I purchased these at full price but I noticed that twice already they have gone on sale. At full price, they are a great deal, on sale they are fantastic. I am picking up more sets just to have on hand for when family and friends stop by and want to join in the coloring fun.
I think these are a wonderful and inexpensive item to pick up. They also make a fantastic gift for anyone who is into coloring. They would make a great stocking stuffer gift at the holidays.
