Not only does this book feature 78 beautiful original mandalas, but it also has 30 outline templates for you to create your own! The mandalas aren't 'boring mandalas' as I sometimes refer to them; each has a theme and is actually interesting instead of being repetitive geometrical patterns. On the opposite page to each mandala, Lisa has added some guided meditiations for you to think about as you colour, as well as colour suggestions for each section of the illustration. This means each mandala is elaborately explanined in terms of its meaning and intended effect on the colourist.
Paper-wise, it's smooth and white with minimal-to-none bleed through from water based markers such as Triplus and Stabilo. Any bleeding that does occur is not really a problem anyway, because all you'll be ruining is the explanation of the next mandala, so you could use any kind of medium to colour this book. It is square in shape and chunky, so it feels very substantial and a worthwhile purchase. The cover is plain white with shiny gold accents, giving it a simple yet quality feel.
One thing I would say is some of the colouring spaces are very small, I'm talking smaller than 0.4mm fineliners can handle without going over the lines. There is a great range of different types across this book though, many with larger white areas for people without perfect vision or a magnifying glass!
Here's my finished mandala. I challenged myself to hold back from my usual rainbow palette and use only 2 colours. I think it's worked quite well! I love the mosaic effect :)
