Pop Manga Coloring Book by Camilla d'Errico

Pop Manga Coloring Book by Camilla d'Errico is a beautiful new edition in the new genre of adult coloring books.  Unlike other coloring books, this features the beautiful Manga of Camillia d"Errico.   This is a beautifully detailed coloring book for made especially for teen-aged, and young adult readers who enjoy manga.  Additionally, anyone who appreciates fine modern art will enjoy this book. The beautiful scenic drawings, figures and characters and surreal scenes in of themselves are a works of art. Unlike other adult coloring books filled with impossible to color geometric patters and laborious minuscule detail, this book is actually fun to color with its beautiful and playful illustrations that are not simply overly detailed with repetitious geometric pattern with  beautiful fantasy images.

The beautiful binding features a removable jacket as well as a cover that can also be colored as well.  This makes a great gift for yourself or a friend or art  enthusiast .  The luxurious quality of this book, thick pages, and elaborate art,  is unexpected considering its affordable retail price.  Its an affordable luxury certain to brighten up anyone's day. Armed with a sharpened set of colored pencils, this book can become a personalized masterpiece to treasure and even pass down, or to fram and hang up as wall art.  The completed pages in color would make a unique personal addition to any bedroom or home decor.  I This is a coloring project that takes time, perseverance and patience. For those who persevere and complete this book- it will make a beautiful keepsake volume or even art suitable for hanging.

I could imagine many readers who appreciate art will hesitate before making the first stroke with their pencils as well.  Some of these pages can take hours to complete- maybe more than the time allowed in one sitting.  It takes patience.  Be sure to have a pencil sharpener handy when starting this book.  Don't bother with crayons or markers.   I feel as if this would also make a beautiful book if it was full color rather than a coloring book.  I almost would have preferred this to  be a traditional full color story than a  coloring book.  As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Watson Guptill for the purpose of writing this review.
