The Colors of Asia: An Anti-Stress Coloring Book for Calm and Creativity

We rated this book:


Ignore the tranquilizers, instead pick up some colored pencils, crayons, or pens, and focus on painting on almost a hundred black and white drawings. The images are selected from Asian art so this volume includes representations of Indonesian batik, the patterns from Chinese and Japanese plates, pictures from Pakistani tile, Myanmar umbrella, Persian carpets, Indian ornaments, and more. Mandalas and patterns from both Turkey and India are included along with oriental floral designs. Tuttle Publishing promises to attempt to acquaint the English world with the culture of Asia. The book cover art displays the coloration of a painted China bottle, but a black and white replica is included in the volume. The source of the drawings are identified on the back pages as well. Unfortunately, the sample pages are not numbered so it is difficult to quickly connect the source with the image. Another shortcoming with this edition is that the drawings are printed on both sides of the page, so that it will require copying the design to a single sided page to prevent ruining the backside. Nonetheless, forget everything while you relax and reveal your imaginative and truly unique coloring techniques.
