The Time Garden by Daria Song

Published: September 1, 2015
Number of pages: 80

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.

What did I think of this book:
Yes I have been bit by the adult coloring book craze. This book is very detailed which for me means many hours of coloring time. I like how this book is not only a coloring book but a story book as well. My plan is to get the entire thing colored then give it as a gift to my niece and nephew. I have finished the cover of the book and it took me two days. There are pictures on the front and back of the pages so you get double the coloring pages. Also the pages are made of heavy cardstock. Myself I use colored pencils for my coloring. I also think it is neat that you can color the front and back of the removable cover as well the main cover of the book. A must have for your coloring book collection.
