Home Sweet Home: A Hand-Crafted Adult Coloring Book

Rating: 5 of 5
This is a pretty and interesting coloring book. It has many designs which are associated with a home. I was a little surprised as from the name, I thought there would be some views of rooms within a house but it is really items found there plus some garden designs. The designs range from open and easy to color to more elaborate with some intricate details.
The book itself is really pretty, too. It has a dust jacket which can be colored, inside and out. The outside has a beautiful touch of gold foil. The designs include items such as: flowers, the front door light, cherry pie, flatware, beautiful glassware, frames, frames, candles, goldfish, outside window box of flowers, hummingbirds, and much more.
The designs are printed double-sided on a good heavyweight white paper. What is wonderful is that the pages are perforated for easy removal. There are eleven designs which appear to be spread across two pages and which will be divided if you remove the pages from the book. The good news is that, for the most part, they can easily stand-alone as single page designs.
I tested a variety of pens and what I discovered is: my markers either bleed through (alcohol-based) or leave a shadow on the backside of the page (water-based). None of my gel pens had any problems and I was able to color with ease with a variety of pencils on the surface of the page.
