Be prepared for too much cute! Today we’ll look at Lonely Planet World’s Cutest Animal Colouring Book by Lulu Mayo. This is technically aimed for children but it’s totally too cute to miss for adults as well, I think.
Details: Paperback, Lonely Planet, 2016
Pages: 229 x 264 x 5mm, 48 pages, good quite thick paper, single-sided (a colored example on reverse for the next image)
I filmed it before coloring the example and then happily proceeded to format my memory card before copying the file to my computer so the flip through is filmed after I discovered it and already colored a page. Cause I rock and all that.
As you can see, it’s a cutie! The book has 22 images to color, all of different animals. The opposite page has an example of how you could color the image (but don’t have to). In the end, there’s a world map, showing where each of these animals live and also giving you some facts about each of them. So not only cute but also educational.
The paper is good, it’s thick enough to also take some water and I’m sure it would look awesome with Inktense for instance. For pencils it’s also great, it does have a tiny bit of a texture so if you want a completely polished look, a blender pencil is your friend here. But it looks just great as is as well.
Colored with Caran D’Ache Pablo.
Overall, it’s absolutely adorable! I love the cute animals and fun creative images in this book. It’s definitely a keeper for me!
Disclosure: A review copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. All of the above opinions are my own.
In other news, destash is still going (clicky HERE) and all tins will come with a coloring book of some sort, won’t tell you which ones though 🙂
