A Court of Thorns and Roses Coloring Book Review
New York Times Best Selling author, Sarah J Maas last year released a coloring book based on her previous novels, Throne of Glass. The Throne of Glass Coloring Book was an instant success with both fans of her novels and colorists that enjoyed the style of art portrayed in the book. Just like in Throne of Glass, the art work has been created by a variety of artists to represent different scenes in the novels.
Cover & Layout
The glossy red cover features partially colored printing and silver foil highlights on the thorns. Both the thorns and the title are embossed.
On the back cover set against a rich black background are thumbnails of other books produced by Sarah Maas including Throne of Glass Coloring Book.
The black spine features the title in white text and author name in red.
A Court of Thorns and Roses Colouring Book measures approximately 25.5cm x 25.5 cm (approximately 10in x 10in)
A plain text title page commences the book. At the rear of the book there are three pages of details about the author and the contributing artists to the book. The last page contains copyright information. Any of these pages would be the best place to test out your mediums on the paper and see how they react with your coloring style.
Illustrations are printed on both sides of white, medium quality paper. The paper has a faint texture to it, making it ideal for pencils.
On each page there is an illustration from a scene in the book and on the reverse is a snippet from the book and the name of the book that it relates to. This is extremely helpful for those that have not read Sarah’s novels or those that need a refresher. As a general rule, the illustrations relate to the text.
All of the art work in the book uses the whole of the page. Lines do run to the spine of the book. The binding loosens very easily and colorists should have no difficulty in coloring these areas.
A Court of Thorns and Roses Coloring Book Images and Illustrations
When there is a variety of artists that contribute to a coloring book you will see varied illustrations as they each interpreet the book in their own way. One of the things that I would have liked to see is artist attirbution so you could learn more about an artist whose line art you admired.
Inside you will find illustrations of flowers, people, animals, interior scenes, castles, forests and fantasy all wrapped into one book. I imagine that many colorists will be tempted to read the novel along side their coloring book.
As there are a number of artists they each use different line art. Throughout the book the line art is a dull black and crisp. Some of the artists outline in a very thick line which is easy to see for those with a visual impairment and others use a fine, almost delicate line.
Most of the images are packed with detail but may contain a few elements with more open space suitable for those colorists with minor visual impairment or health challenges like arthritis. There are only a handful of images in the book that have large open spaces on the bulk of the page.
