This book is obviously self-published, probably by someone looking to make a quick buck on the adult coloring trend without putting much effort into the product. Like other reviewers, I wanted a cat-themed coloring book. It gets two stars for meeting that requirement.The back cover image (which is very cheap-looking and stylistically doesn't match the rest of the book) bleeds onto the front. There is no copyright page, which is telling since the styles of designs in the book vary to the point where it's obvious they're from multiple artists; some of the drawings feature the same cat faces in different settings, making me wonder if those pages were designed with pre-made vector sets rather than being hand-drawn by the mysterious publisher. The quality of images is very poor--almost all of them are highly pixelated like they'd been stretched to fit a letter-sized page. The paper is very thin; it's your basic 20-lb copy paper, so markers will not be the best medium for coloring the pages, as they will bleed through badly. At least the pages are one-sided.I received this book as a promotional item through a review site, however the seller failed to provide a working discount so I ended up paying full price anyways. You'd be better off shelling out the extra $2 for a Dover coloring book.
This is a fun way to deal with stress. They even use coloring as a stress reliever in college. These are beautiful designs with plenty of small areas to color. There are one on a page with white space behind them. I tried different techniques for coloring. First I used gel pens. They worked well, but there was a limited color palette to work from. Then I used coloring pencils, Prismacolor are best. There is a wide range of colors and it is an easy way to fill in the fine lines with a fine point. Next I used chalk markers. They worked well for large areas to color, but bled through a bit. Then I used Bic mark it markers. It has a good range of colors, but bled through. Sharpies work well and have a good color range, but bled through the page. Then I tried calligraphy pens. It was difficult to place the lines where I wanted, and they were the worst for bleeding through the page. If you use these type of pens and markers, you might want to place cardboard or some other backing behind your page so that the do not ruin your other creations. I did not use crayons because I had none, but I think the lines are too intricate fir them, anyway. My choice for coloring will be colored pencils or sharpies/mark its with a board to back up the page I am working on. It is a fun way to pass time. I received this coloring book at a discounted price so that I could give an honest and unbiased review. I like to share my experiences with others so that they might make an informed and intelligent decision in buying.
I love coloring for stress relief, and have quite the collection of adult coloring books, but didn't have any that were just cat pictures, so I thought I would check this one out. It is printed on decent quality paper, not super thin like some kids coloring books are. Each image is single-sided on the page, so you don't get bleed through on the opposite image. What I was really unhappy with is that several of the cat images are really small on the page, and highly detailed. There is no way I can color thin enough likes on those images. It would have been nice if the back cover had some of the images from the inside printed on it so you can get a little bit of an idea about what is in the book. Seeing "CATS CATS CATS" just repeated over the entire back page seems to me like they were just dialing it in on the back, and not thinking about the book as a whole.I did receive a discount on this coloring book for my honest, fair and unbiased review.
Cute Cats (Adult coloring books) (Volume 1)I love coloring. I was coloring even before it was "cool". I'm actually not a big fan of the typical "adult" coloring book. All those mandalas....I was hopeful up for this coloring book. I am very much a cat person. I have 4!!!This is coloring book is strange. There are some simple pictures, some more complex and some that are a mixture. I wondering if maybe multiple artist worked on it or maybe the images were photo shopped (multiple pictures melded into one) If it's this way to my untrained eye, what does it look like to a trained one?There are 19 pages to color. The paper is on the thicker side but not the best and only printed on one side (pros and cons there, helps bleed thru, but if images were on both sides there could be more images)Overall: 3 stars. Some of the images are off center on the pages and the quality of the images just aren't there, at least in my opinion.I just didn't like it.Full Discloser: I received this product for a reduced price or free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Here's how I review: 5 stars I would buy for me or as a gift at full price, 4 stars I would buy for me if on sale, 3 stars it would have to be a really good sale, 2 stars I would not buy for me but it may be good for others, 1 star I wouldn't use it even if it was free and I can't see how anyone would find it useful
