Alice’s Wonderfilled Adventures Coloring Book Review
As most people know, I adore Alice in Wonderland. I would hate to count how many Alice in Wonderland books that I own! One of the things that I do love about the artists in the coloring book community is the different interpretations of classic fairy tales they provide. Abigail Larson has provided a whole new look “Alice” in her Wonderfilled Adventures coloring book. I am not familiar with Abigail’s work, so it did take me a little while to come to terms with Alice with a twist 🙂
Cover & Layout
The coloring book has a nice card cover with illustrations on the inner and back cover. The front glossy cover features a colored drawing from within the book with red foil title highlights. The book measures 27.5 cm x 21cm (approximately 10.9 in x 8.2 in).
A plain title page introduces you to the book and on the reverse there is the line work for the cover image.
Another title page follows and then the balance of the coloring book.
The illustrations in the book have been printed on white paper with one illustration per page. The paper appears to be a trade stock weight. I would use some pieces of paper between the pages to ensure that there is no bleed through from wet mediums or dents from pencils.
There are 70 illustrations in the book in total. The illustrations all have a hand drawn “sketch” feel about them. The line work is black, crisp and clear. The line weight ranges between a fine and medium line weight.
Alice’s Wonderfilled Adventures – hand drawn sketch like appearance
Abigail, has filled the book with a twist on a variety of scenes representative of Alice in Wonderland. In addition, there are pages that have quotes/text on them and some pages of patterns.
For those that have a visual impairment, you may have difficulty discerning some of the lines in the drawings. If you use a magnifying lamp you should not have any issues. The majority of illustrations provide large spaces making it easy to color in the areas.
Most of the illustrations have been centered nicely on the page although there are one or two where elements have been removed from the page. The majority of the illustrations abut the spine area but the book does lay down with forceful pushing.
Fans of goth, fantasy art and macarbe art will likely be fans of this take on Alice in Wonderland conjured up by the imagination of Abigail Larson. I have to say that I am looking at the Cheshire Cat in a whole new light since reviewing this book 🙂
