‘Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book’ Review

'Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book' Review

I love adult coloring books. While my daughter works on her school work, I enjoy coloring in my own books. When recently offered the chance to review an advanced review copy of Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book by Amrita Sen in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add a new title to my collection of coloring books. The 96-page adult coloring book costs $19.99 on pre-order on Amazon with a release date of January 16, 2017.

Author/Illustrator

Author and illustrator Amrita Sen is a multi-talented artist who debuted her illustrations at Art Basel in Miami. She was trained as a visual artist but also holds degrees from The Wharton School of Business and an MBA from Harvard. She was recently honored as one of the 50 most distinctive female graduates in Harvard Business School history. She has also released records with Weezer, Timbaland, Pitbull, and Ozomotli, along with many other collaborators.

Synopsis

Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book features a tasteful blend of Jaipuian art styles combining elements of Eastern and Western cultures with a backstory of the mythical Krishna and Radha love story. The incredibly detailed black and white drawing make the book a joy to color. The 10 inch by 10 inch book also includes a musical CD featuring songs by the artist herself, which complement the classic story.

Note: I received an advance review copy that was produced on standard glossy paper stock for reviewers only. The “on sale” copies of the coloring book are printed on paper more suited for coloring and framing.

Evaluation

What I like most about Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book is that the book is both a story and a coloring book. After you finish coloring all the pages, you can then continue to read the love story again and again. Unlike a regular coloring book, Cosmic and Eternal Love becomes a regular book that you can keep on your bookshelf for years to come.

I also really love the intricate black and white pictures to color on the 96 pages of the book. Because I received a glossy copy to review, I have been using my Super Markers to color the designs. Each page is full of so many details to color. I also love looking at the black and white pages before adding coloring. Although Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book is geared towards adults, younger colorers can also enjoy the fabulous illustrations on each page.

I find that the coloring book that becomes a love story is reasonably priced at $19.99. The designs on each page are so intricate that you will spend hours adding color to the book. You can then read the entire love story again and again. If you are a fan of adult coloring books, definitely check out Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book today.

Final Verdict

Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book weaves a traditional Indian love story with incredibly detailed black and white drawings to color. The 96-page adult coloring book currently costs $19.99, which I consider quite reasonable for a coloring book that becomes a regular reading book. The intricate black and white pictures throughout the book are a joy to color. I definitely recommend Cosmic and Eternal Love from artist Amrita Sen to all coloring fans.
