I just got the new Dover Coloring Book catalog and thought I'd post about a few books that caught my eye. You can view all the Dover coloring books at: doverpublications.com
INSANELY INTRICATE ENTANGLED LANDSCAPES
The title says it all. They really are intricate. Insanely so! Click on the title link to view 'look inside' at Amazon and see examples.
Illustrated by Marty Noble, my favorite coloring book artist! Her drawings are always neat, detailed, and drawn with the colorist in mind. The link takes you to Amazon where you can view some interior pages.
CITYSCAPES: A Coloring Book with a Hidden Picture Twist
Cityscapes from all over the world, and each picture contains hidden objects to find. Looks like fun! I like this 'look inside' version because the beginning of the book shows all the pages within. Great way to know what you're getting before you buy online.
Super gorgeous artwork in this one. While you'd expect skulls in a book featuring calaveras, the animals are very stylized, and mostly focus on the Day of the Dead kind of details without going toward what some might view as morbid, so this one won't freak out those who might not like skulls. ;-)
MAGICAL MEHNDI: Striking Patterns on a Dramatic Black Background
Get out your neon colors and your brights for this one! The detailed artwork is set against a black background to really make your colors pop. Click the link for examples.
DOLPHIN DREAM DESIGNS
Dolphins, and other sea animals (whales, mermaids, etc) frolicking in the waves, or amidst more stylized paisleys and tattoo-like patterns. Fun stuff!
So which one catches your eye? All of them? ;-)
