Where book 4 concentrated on patterns and inspiration of India, the illustrations in book 5 have a definite Asian flavour, from the Dragon on the cover to Koi carp and native Japanese Sakura flowers. There are some wallpaper designs and mandalas, but most of the illustrations are centred standalone pieces. Here is a video flipthrough of the whole book:
For the first time, each page is perforated at the spine for easy removal, and the illustrations are all one-sided meaning you can use whatever art mediums you like. The cover is also thicker and made from glossy card rather than matte this time. There is gold foiling and stunningly beautiful exotic colours that really draw you into the book. It is available to buy on Masja's webshop for around £5, a bargain for the quality.
My finished page was coloured with Staedtler Triplus felt pens, and I'm working on another with rainbow Deco Foil - see my tutorial for using foil in your colouring books here.
