Elephant Parade Postcard Colouring Book Review
The One and Only Elephant Parade Postcard Colouring Book is based on the art work that artists use around the worldwide to decorate elephant statues for the Elephant Parade. There are Elephant Parades in all parts of the world including Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bangkok, Bergen, Calais, California, Copenhagen, Emmen and Florianópolis. I was wondering why I had never heard of the Elephant Parade but looking at the list, I see Australia is absent. You can read more about the Elephant Parade in your country here.
Nothing warms my heart more than a good cause. I’m a bit of a marshmallow and I love elephants so buying The One and Only Elephant Parade Postcard colouring book was an easy decision for me. The designs are from various Elephant Parades held in the past and details of the Parade and the artist are on the back of each card. Proceeds from each book sold will go to the main Elephant Parade office to be distributed to aid “elephant welfare and conversation projects worldwide”.
The postcard book is larger than most postcard colouring books measuring in at 14.5 cm x 22 cm (5 3/4 in x 8 3/4 in approximately). The glossy card cover protects 30 detachable postcards that are easily removed. The illustrations are printed on white cardstock which is very good quality. The illustrations are printed well with crisp, black line work making it easy to see. The illustrations run right to the spine but the perforation finishes approximately 0.5 cm before.
I am guessing that this was printed this way to ensure that during the printing process the full image always remains on the card that can be detached. On the rear of each image is the address label details, should you wish to part and post your colorings. You will also see a colored image of the elephant that the design elephants originate from.
I have one small quibble with the postcard book and that is my copy, at least, doesn’t appear very sturdy. Just flipping through it for a one time review and cards became detached 🙁 In view of the way that the book has been bound with the perforations, I would have preferred a stronger glue to hold the cards in place.
Not knowing about The Elephant Parade when I ordered the book online, I incorrectly assumed the coloring book featured loads of elephants in it 🙂 I should not have assumed that, because in all fairness, the cover does not depict images of elephants 🙂
