This is my first coloring book to review and I have to say I have LOVED it! Their are some simple and fun pages to do. Then there are the intricate pages for the books that have almost hidden bits in them. They are the ones I gravitated to. The art is clean and entertaining to look at as black and white, but as you begin to color them they start to pop! Plus when you color a page that is for a book you had read and see pieces that remind you about that book, just makes it even better. The only thing I found lacking about this coloring book was that I wasn't able to tear out the pages. Some of the art is under the fold which makes it hard to get to. I have enjoyed this book immensely and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys not only reading but coloring the books they love to read.
Q&A with Christina Collie
1. How were you able to choose from all of the amazing books out there? Did you have a criteria you were looking for?
I have a ton of favorite books, I mean, a ton. And it was actually really hard for me to pick what books to include. But I chose books based on my love for them, and inspiration for that book :)
2. Were you always a fan of coloring or has the eruption of adult coloring books awakened it in you? (I myself have always been a bit of a kid and liked coloring!)
I used to color growing up like crazy. I think I was the only kid that was obsessive about staying in the lines, haha. But as I got older, instead of coloring, I swapped it to drawing my favorite books. The idea of a coloring book was so interesting to me because I've always wondered what my black and white artwork would look like colored, and it would be a fun, interactive way for my fans to be part of creating a piece of art with me. I have colored some of the pages and they are so much fun! I'm most likely going to take a book and color the entire thing, cover to cover.
3. I myself love coloring nature and ocean scenes as well as clothes and buildings so your book will be a new adventure that I look forward to! Apart from your own coloring book what are your favorite things to color?
I love coloring anything. Any time I go to restaurants with kid coloring pages, I sit at the table and color or draw. Haha.
4. Do you have other coloring book ideas in the works?
I do currently have a few ideas. We'll see if we can make them work :)
5. What book or books would you like to see have their own coloring books?
I think my favorite books already have coloring books. Harry Potter is a huge favorite of mine. I kind of grew up with Harry, so it's so much fun that story has one!
