The Night Voyage (review)

You can almost tell by the beautiful decorated cover that this is a very thought out book.  That this book is not your average book.  That this is a book that can take you on an extraordinary journey.

This book is a coloring book in the sense that the pictures on the pages are blank.  The pictures are so detailed and the portray the story with little to no words.  This is a story coloring book.  I do not write adult coloring book with strong hesitation but, if you know the artist and their capability you can make the right decision if this book were to be given as gift.

The story follows a little girl through her dreams.  She has presents to give out and she takes different modes of transportation, sees many different things as well as has a companion along the way.  There doesn't seem to be a dull moment on her journey although toward the end she falls asleep. 

 Follow her on her journey.  Coloring the pages will only make this book more magical and pretty.  The artwork alone is stunning.  Who doesn't want to look at a book filled with presents and happiness?  This would even make a great gift colored by one individual and presented to another.

Because of the intricate detail on each page I would reserve caution to more fine tuned artists.  Each page is filled both large and small work to be filled in.  Most pages have a white background but there were a couple with shaded.  Pages held a variety of shapes, different positions of pictures resulting in some tricky coloring.  Some pictures were in the crease of the book.  Bold lines for you to follow (or stay in).  As well as empty space on some pages allowing for your own background or not.

This is a gorgeous book and I can only hope to do it justice as I color in it.  It is definitely no a book you would sit down and finish in one day nor, maybe coloring it with children or kaos around.  Pull this book out on quiet relaxing afternoons!

I am in awe of the author Daria Song  and would like to look at more of her work.  She truly has a talent.

I received this book from Blogging for books for this review.  All opinions are my own.
