Home Sweet Home – A Hand Crafted Coloring Book – Adult Coloring Book Review
When I seen the cover of this book online I fell in love with it. I loved the feeling of whimsy and comfort it gave me. The pretty dust jacket with some printed highlights and traces of gold foil called me to buy. When I purchased online, there wasn’t a “look inside” feature so I based my buying decision entirely on the cover. My expectations were that the balance of the book would be similar to the cover.
The book arrived very quickly and I loved the square 10 x 10 x 10 inches. I was disappointed to find that the delivery men had been a bit rough with the book and consequently the colorable dust jacket on it was torn.
The inside of cover is also colorable and has a lovely black and white line drawing on it with gold foil highlights.
In total there are 72 pages in the book. The paper is white and the quality is good. It would not withstand markers though without bleed through. The illustrations have been printed on both pages of the book right to the spine. What is interesting is that you could color to the spine or tear the image out by the perforation and color it. The perforation is not on the spine but is about 1/2 centimetre from it.
I had expectations of houses with kitchen dressers full of lovely cups and cupcakes. I don’t know why – it’s not the illustrators fault that I didn’t look inside. The book does contain lovely images and patterns. There is a page of cutlery, flowers in jars, birds, fish and the like. Really, the things that you find around the home including your garden. There are also some fun illustrations of picture frames that you can color and insert your own photo in.
Overall, I really like the book, other than the torn jacket and my expectations that it would be something else entirely.
