The Time Chamber | Adult Coloring Book | Book Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review Daria Song's "The Time Chamber".  This is a storybook style coloringbook, geared to older children and adults.  It has the many beautifully intricate designs covering each page, but unlike most "adult" coloring books, this isn't just random designs.  This book is just that, a book.  It tells the story (mostly through pictures for you to color) of a little fairy who lives inside a cuckoo, but chooses to venture out into the world (a little girls' room) to see what adventures await.  

The images are beautiful, but are different than most coloring books I have or have seen.  They are very intricate, but not the typical zentangle style designs.  It is a paperback book with a dust cover.  

The pages are extremely thick, which I LOVE.  Even coloring with the darkest of my fine tip Steadtler markers, not even a hint of bleed-through could be seen.  I can't say that about my other adult coloring books.  

For me, the story itself did nothing for me.  But, even though I didn't really care about the story, I still enjoy coloring in the book.  It is different than all of my other zentangle and adult coloring books.  But different isn't a bad thing.  This is a beautiful gift-worthy book for fairy and art lovers alike.  And the perfect rainy day or stress-relieving activity!  

I received this book for free from the Blogging for Books Program for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
