Traditional Designs from India Sept. 12 2009
By Jackie R. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a lovely book either to color or to simply leave black and white. If you choose to color it, the designs are quite intricate and complex. It requires sharp pencils or fine tipped markers.

I know next to nothing about Indian Art, being from a very different cultural background myself, but it looks like Ms. Noble as gone to great pains to make her designs as accurate as possible. The designs come from varied sources: embroidery, woodcut, painting, scrolls, etc.-- some of which have been combined by the artist to created a composite piece of her own (and probably to make the design fit the page better).

This is one of the best coloring books that I have from Dover's cultural series. I think anyone who is enterested in different cultures or who simply wants an enjoyable coloring experience will like this book.

beautiful pages to color or use for painting July 27 2008
By A. Laurita - Published on
Format: Paperback
Beautiful pages to color. Intricate so not for the very young. Good for copying onto a wall or furniture to paint. Unique designs.

Great coloring for older children and adults! March 7 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Dover coloring books are great, the designs are wonderful, and I'm enjoying the time I spend coloring in them.

One thing to note, if you use markers there is some bleed through to the next page. It is unfortunate that I did not test this before I started out using markers. Colored pencils would be my recommendation unless you scan and print each picture on an individual page to color with markers.

I would order these again, and I'll probably end up ordering some for my daughter as she likes to spend time coloring intricate designs as well.

My 7-yr-old daughter was born in India and has a fascination with all things Indian, especially mehndi designs. This is a really beautiful and intricate coloring book that will give her many fun new ideas. Very nice.

Extremely Fine Details BUT double-sided Aug. 12 2011
By G. Jordan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The designs are double-sided, so these pages are NOT good for removing & framing, or for any wet media, which is what I use. I'm very disappointed for this will require me to make copies of any designs in order not to bleed through to the other design. Usually when double-sided, scanning & copying makes the back of page design show through, and the paper is thin & a bit off-white, so copies will not be clean. As for the designs, they are finely detailed, suitable for adults and teens.
