Intricate ink: Animals in Detail

Intricate Ink: Animals in Detail Coloring Book - Tim Jeffs
This is supposed to be an adult coloring book but to be honest with you, I am afraid to take any type of coloring tool to them. These drawings are just amazing! Tim went into great detail to draw them and I am just happy to have this book on my coffee table to thumb through. It states on one of the opening pages that Tim did extensive research before he began his drawings and that he pays particular attention to the animal's eyes as he draws, which I can attest to as the eyes on these pictures look as if they are looking right at me and these drawings look lifelike.

This is a hardcopy coloring book which surprised me when I opened up my package and inside the book, there are 50 different animals/creatures on the pages to color. Each animals has it's own page with nothing printed behind it. The animals are alphabetized starting with alligator and ending with zebra. There is a buffalo, lionfish, sloth, nautilus, lemur, hippo, cheetah, spiny lobster and a komodo dragon just to name a few. The paper is thick and has a slick feeling. On some of the pages, I don't believe it would take much coloring to finish the drawing as it is mainly draw is black and gray with a little bits of white showing through. I know the temptation to color just one of these drawing will have me picking up a colored pencil and filling it in and I feel that it will bring this animal to life but at the same time, just looking at these amazing drawings are well worth the price of this book. This is definitely a keeper.
