Pusheen Coloring Book

I like many of the designs in the book. There are lots of mandalas and themed pages. My favorites are the seasonal mandalas extremely cute!
The book is printed on both sides of white medium weight, slightly rough paper, non-perforated paper. The designs do not spread across two pages but the design elements do merge into the binding on most of them. The binding is glued, so you will have to cut pages out if you want to remove them.
I found that alcohol-based markers bled through the page quickly. Water-based markers and India ink pens left slight shadows on the back of the page. Some colors of gel pens also left extremely light, indistinct shadows. What I found that worked best was colored pencils. Both oil and wax-based pencils worked equally well. I was able to layer the same color for deeper pigment, layer multiple colors, and to easily blend using a pencil style blender stick.
