Every Little Thing: A Flat Vernacular Coloring Book by Payton Cosell Turner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I saw the chance to review an adult aimed coloring book I took the opportunity. I like that it has hand drawn images as opposed to something computer generated. If I wanted computer generated pages I could print them out myself. I like that it isn’t entirely images to color in, that there’s some white space so the colored images pop out more. I love that you can remove the cover and color in the inner (now the outer?) cover so it’s entirely your color scheme. I love that there’s no words to distract you. I love that it’s unique and admittedly odd in some respect on certain pages. That adds to the uniqueness of the book. It also lends to the title of being or containing every little thing. Overall I enjoyed flipping through the pages and can’t wait to get a set of colored pencils, although I might steal a few from my son’s art drawer. Also, even though this is aimed at adults, my son (11) says he would much prefer to color these pages over the ones he has to color at school. I received an ARC through Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
