The Time Garden

Disclosure: I was provided a review copy of this book. All opinions are as always my own.

In case you haven't heard, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. I know, I know - the thought of sitting down and coloring.... um.... haven't done that since I was about six years old. If I have a moment of free time, coloring just doesn't spring to mind.





Last weekend, I was at the lovely Graue Mill in Oakbrook, Illinois, with my daughter and her friend. As we hiked through the beautiful woods, admiring the trees dressed in their autumnal best, we can across a young woman sitting beside the creek...coloring. She looked so relaxed, so at ease, I couldn't help but thinking, maybe everyone is onto this coloring thing???

Here's a beautiful book if you'd like to get in on the coloring trend. The Time Garden by Daria Song.


"A dazzlingly beautiful coloring book for all ages, The Time Garden will sweep you away into a whimsical cuckoo clock–inspired world, created in intricate pen and ink by the internationally best-selling Korean artist Daria Song. Then, explore the magical world outside the clock through the eyes of a fairy in the sequel, The Time Chamber: A Magical Story and Coloring Book.
Journey through the doors of a mysterious cuckoo clock into its inky innerworkings to discover a magical land of clock gears, rooftops, starry skies, and giant flying owls—all ready for you to customize with whatever colors you can dream up.

Cuckoo . . . cuckoo . . . cuckoo . . . When the clock strikes midnight, you’ll wonder, was it all a dream?

The Time Garden features extra-thick craft paper, ideal for non bleed-through coloring, and the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine and a To/From page make it perfect for gifting to adults and kids alike
."

It's easy to get lost in this beautiful coloring book, which carries the reader (and colorer!) into a cuckoo clock–inspired world. Korean artist Daria Song has created intricate pen and ink illustrations that explore a magical, whimsical realm. Flying owls, clock gears, star-filled skies - they are all calling out to be colored in with a set of freshly sharpened colored pencils or markers.

The extra-thick craft paper means your colors won't bleed through and even the jacketed cover with flaps is removable and colorable. Special gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine make it an elegant coloring book for adults; kids will find it amazing, too. 

You can find  The Time Garden: A Magical Journey and Coloring Book by Daria Song at your local independent bookstore or online.
