Review: The Time Chamber By Daria Song


Goodreads Description:
Korean artist Daria Song’s sequel to The Time Garden takes readers on a visual journey into a magical nighttime world seen through the eyes of a fairy.

This second book in the bestselling Time coloring series features the voyage of a fairy who, when the cuckoo clock chimes midnight, enters the human world. To the tiny fairy, everything seems enormous and magical, from the curtains to the chandelier to a mystical rowboat that takes her further into an inky adventure. With her she packs her favorite items, which colorers can find throughout the book’s pages: an owl-feathered pen, a star-scented spray, a time tape measure…even the key to the time chamber itself!

Filled with the imaginative, intricately detailed illustrations Song’s readers have come to love, The Time Chamber presents a view of our world made new—and ready for coloring.

The Time Chamber features extra-thick craft paper, ideal for non bleed-through coloring, and the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine and a To/From page make it perfect for gifting to adults and kids alike.

There is never much to say on a coloring book except what the paper is like and how the details are in the book.
So this time around I used watercolors on the page to see if it would bleed through (last time I used markers) and the paper is thick enough that while it does get all wavy like it typically does when you wet paper, it doesnt bleed through to the other side. It is way tougher to color the tiny details in this book with watercolor, but it IS a possibily xD
As I mentioned, the details in this book are tiny, they are pretty beautiful though.

Recommend it?
