One and Only Colouring Series for Adults‏ - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Phoenix Yard Books.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
A few months ago my mother was in the hospital. I spent several nights in there with her. To pass the time, my sister purchased an adult coloring book and coloring pencils for me. From then on, a hobby was born. I found that coloring helps relieve stress and takes my mind off things. It's beneficial mental relaxation. My mother has taken up the hobby too, and spends a lot of her days coloring in pages. It's been a whirlwind of gel pens, pencils, and markers!
 

One company that I've come across and really like for their adult coloring books is Phoenix Yard Books.  Based out of the UK, their adult coloring books are quickly moving up in the ranks.  I received three different sizes of books from the company.
The One and Only Enormous Colouring Book for Adults is larger than your average book.  It includes 30 poster sized pages of various artwork and designs.  The pages are perforated and one-sided, meaning there's only one design per page.  It's suitable for when I'm at home.  There's times I lay it on the floor to color and relax while watching TV.
The One and Only Colouring Book for Adults is a little smaller than average coloring book and also has a wide variety of designs and patterns to choose from.  There are 144 pages to this book.  It has pictures on each side of a page.
 
The Second One and Only Mandala Colouring Book is the second in a series of books with mandalas to color.  There are 72 pages to this book, with pictures on each side of a page.  The pages are more square than long.  Mandalas are known to be a source of meditation and wisdom.  I'm sure I don't get any wiser coloring from this book, but it sure is calming and soothing. 
 
The paper quality of all three books is favorable for coloring pencils, pens, markers, and other utensils.  I have gotten much enjoyment out of coloring in these books.  Some designs are more intricate than others, but they're all skillfully arranged.  I've even taken a couple of the pictures and framed them to put on the wall after coloring them.  While I thoroughly like all three books, my favorite is the book with all the mandala designs. 
 
I definitely recommend these adult coloring books, as well as the others that are available, to purchase as gifts for the enthusiast or for yourself as a source of relaxation. 

 
Win It!
