Your child age eight or older will enjoy exploring her artistic side with this fascinating book that is part instruction, part creative genius, and all fun.

This book is really something special. Though it's for all ages, to me it's like a coloring-art-activity book for adults. The best part of it is the way it's been printed; the paper is of excellent quality and everything (from the title page and publisher's info to the text and back cover) is handwritten and gives the book a hand crafted feel. Plus the exercises in it are just wonderful.
