The long awaited Harry Potter Coloring Book Review is here. Having watched Harry Potter, we have been waiting for this to arrive.
The book is illustrated by a different artists and it shows. Now some of the designs are simply drawn, which is great for some pages, while others are complex, and even a few with small intricate details that may be difficult to color. We’re excited that they did not over draw the faces with too much detail as it will allows us to add more details and blending on the faces.
In some black spaces, some of the designs are very detailed, which would have been better to left as is. However, the designs are well done artistically. On the back of the book, there are glossy pages which have full colored pictures – it is nice if you like that memorabilia, but with this being The Harry Potter Coloring Book , we’d have like to see more pages for it.
When doing the Harry Potter Coloring Book Review, we found that the book is printed on both sides of off-white heavyweight and non-perforated paper. A good number of the designs are printed across two pages and merge into the bind (which is glued rather than sewn.) There are: 40 one page designs, 4 of which are “wallpaper” repeating patterns; 19 designs spread across two pages – 5 of which are wallpaper style designs. Unfortunately, a good many of the iconic scenes were in the ones that were spread across two sheets. This gets to be difficult if you’re coloring one page as it’s difficult to color in the binding area.
– All markers bleed through so it’s only good for one side with marker
– Gel pens did not leak through but again, there was a very light shadow
– With various coloring pencils, the paper holds up
In the end, the fact that ink could leak through and the pages were printed doubled sided was enough to take away a point. It forces me into coloring pencils of losing part of the book. I wish the book had perforated paper but I don’t detract for that.
