Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book by Robin Mead ~ book review

Robin Mead's Joyful Inspirations Coloring Book is sure to have something for everyone, with over 85 pictures to color. These range from puppies and flowers to buildings, geometric designs, and people. While the pages are all double-sided, I was very impressed that they are thick enough for me to color the pictures using my Crayola adult fine tip markers (non-washable) with zero bleed-through or shadowing at all.

While the pictures themselves cover a wide range of subjects, the format of the pictures also vary. Some are simply an illustration, others contain Scripture or inspirational quotes, and still others serve as a frame along the outer edges of the page with Scripture or inspirational quotes being held within their boundaries.

Overall, I do like this book. Not all of the pictures appeal to me, because they cover such a wide spectrum of art. But this is also part of makes this book suitable for anyone, and it would be a nice project to share with others to fill in the pictures that don't quite fit your personality. That being said, my one complaint about this book is that the pages are not perforated, and some of the pictures continue all the way into the binding making removal (and even coloring) very difficult. This is something to be aware of, depending on your preferred method of coloring pages. 4/5 stars.
