The designs are beautiful, but I didn't realize there were pieces of the pictures colored in already. It takes a bit of the freedom away for choosing colors, if you like coloring using different color schemes.
I didn't realize when ordering that every one of the pictures has parts already colored in by the author/publisher. Some are so complete, there is little for a person to add to it. Ad many have such distinctive portions done, that it really affects the way one can color it - creativity is pre-defined. I would not purchase these books again.
I am incrediblydisappointed in the books! The lines are very thick and every single picture already has color. Each book has its own theme color. I would not buy them if I had it to over again and I don't recommend them.
The books are good, with lots of designs, but the illustrations in each have a designated color, associated with cover, already colored in. It makes them look like they've already been used prior to my ownership, and with a dark color at that. It is actually a color printed by the publisher.
