The World of Debbie Macomber Coloring Book Review
Debbie Macomber is a well known novelist and popular on the Hallmark Channel. In her first coloring book she has brought together a number of illustrators to produce 45 drawings showing scenes from the Rose Harbor and Blossom Street series of books.
Her novels, like her coloring book, depict a comfortable, cosy home life full of happy themes and inspiration. This is a coloring book where the scenes of a happy locale will soothe you with the comforts of home and, perhaps, be an escape from your own day to day life.
The book measures approximately 25.5 cm x 25.5 cm (approximately 10 in x 10 in) with a glossy card cover. The cover is partially colored to give you an idea of the finished product. This picture is based on the cover art from one of her novels, Last One Home. The cover has lovely pink foil title which matches the hot pink spine of the book.
The title and introductory pages are very plain with no illustrations hinting at the things to come. I am slightly disappointed that there is no a name plate page 🙁 This book is certainly one where a nameplate page would increase its charm (if that is at all possible).
This book is very appealing to me. In fact, I’m going to put it in on my favorites list 🙂 I love the images of a cosy, comfortable home and lifestyle on one page and on the facing page a beautiful quote from one of her books. I must confess that I haven’t read any of this author’s works (preferring more criminal based fiction than comfort based escapism). I imagine, fans of this author will adore this coloring book that gives a sense of place to scenes they have imagined in the past.
The paper quality is beautiful. The paper is white, smooth and quite thick. A lot of thought has gone into the preparation of this coloring book including centering the images nicely on a single side of the paper.
The line work of the illustrators is on the whole black and crisp and easy to see. I have no problem at all seeing the art work without my glasses on.
I love the variety of illustrations included in this book. There are landscapes, seascapes, cosy cottages, gardens and country home interiors. The illustrations are also varied in their complexity with images suitable for those new to coloring, for those that prefer larger spaces and for those that love itty bitty details. I find the illustrations in the book very soothing and relaxing.
The book lays down well with some gentle prodding. Most of the illustrations abut the spine so you will need to push the book down in order to color those tricky bits. This is my one minor negative with the Come Home to Color coloring book.
