rinted on both sides, not good
very disappointed that printed on both sides which means need to be copied and one side ruined. People who made this don't know color because the markers bleed through. I use several pages of blank paper behind each picture, cut them out and color on a flat surface with paper beneath, this one book is pretty useless.

I love most of the designs but had to pick which ...
This was the first adult coloring book I bought so I did not know about designs printed on both side of the page. I love most of the designs but had to pick which ones I wanted to color as it is impossible to do both if you use markers as they go right through the page and mess up the design there. so you only get half the amount of images to color.

I was not luckier with pencils as they ruin the underside design too, maybe I press too hard and you will be OK. Some people copy the designs but I did not like the feel of my copy paper when I colored on it. Creative Haven is my go to choice now as they only print on one side. I have given this book 4 stars for the art, not for the finished book

I did NOT get this book for free nor for a discount so you get my unbiased opinion.

Intericate and Beutifully Designed
Original Review:

The mandalas in this book are very beautiful and the designs are so intericate they remind me of works of art you see in a museum. I like to use color pencils so the double page design doesn't detract from the book for me at least. I liked that there were a few examples of what finished mandalas look like. As someone who is still fairly new to mandalas.

Edit typo.

Update for Dec 2017

Since buying this Mandala book in February of 2014 (and leaving review that I thought was for Amazon and the author. Not actually published on site.)

I have gone on to re-purchase this book several more times for gift giving. After developing a preference for gel pens in adult coloring. I returned to purchase two copies of this book to remove the pages since this book has a double page design. Although that's fine when using color pencils, it actually isn't a great design feature for anyone who enjoys using a wet media for coloring. Especially if there are designs you wish to keep after your finished

While I'm now of the opinion that this book would benefit from a single-sided book format. For colorist versatility. It still a 5* book in my estimation based upon how I've witnessed others receive it as well as my first impression of the book. I would highly recommend this book to others.

Beautiful art, terrible implementation.
I love the designs in this book, but unfortunately the pages are thin. They would not withstand marker. They would probably not be archival. There would be bleed through if you used even the lightest of inks, and added gesso on top of it (yes it's a thing). However the art itself is beautiful. The mandalas are gorgeous and unique. Unlike so many other mandala based books out there this has some really original art. I hope the author and artist can get this book republished on perforated one sided multi media paper. I scanned the design so I could color some of them on nice card stock. However, I wish I didn't have to do that. If it was any other book I probably wouldn't have bothered.

A beautiful piece, but with too many issues to be enjoyed.
As lovely as many of these images are, this book has some serious issues that cannot be ignored. Firstly, and most importantly, the pages are printed double sided. This limits the medium one can use on this book to dry only- no markers, no paints, etc. You are essentially limited to just pencils, which might not be such a big issue if... The second issue: The pages are VERY thin. Even with gentle shading motions, shredding a point of a page is so easy, it detracts from the enjoyment of the coloring. Lastly, The pages are not scored for easy removal from the book, making it even harder to work on a single image. With all of the other issues, this is not a book I would buy for someone else or recommend.

Mystical Mandala Coloring Book
Mystical Mandala Coloring Book is one of my favorite adult coloring books. This is not listed as an adult coloring book but I would not call this for a child. The designs are intricate but not overly detailed.
Not every picture is fantastic but the majority of them are wonderful. There are very few I actually dislike.
I really like the quality of this paper. My pens do not run or smear like other papers do.
I can see myself ordering this book again when I get done coloring the last page.
I have tried both colored pencils as well as gel pens and love the way they both work out. The colors end up very bright and vibrant or very soft and beautiful. This book has got me addicted.
I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys coloring.

Not worth even the small amount I paid for it.
I had high hopes for this book, but was disappointed. The cover looked legit, but once opened, it looked like badly photocopied pages of mandalas that I have seen before. Even though this was inexpensive, it was not worth even the small amount I paid for it.

While we can all agree that this particular Dover coloring book targets adults, the format of the book remains the same. Ergo:

- Images are on both sides of the page.
- Pages are not perforated.
- The paper is not flimsy but not exactly thick, either.
- The book lies flat.

Excellent value for the money, particularly if you are coloring for relaxation. And that is the point, isn't it? I mean, we're not trying to produce masterpieces, right?

new techniques and what I enjoy coloring; which at the moment is pretty much ...
Being and avid colorist that started this past summer, and I fell into hook line and sinker; I have collected a variety of coloring books, different types of mediums (pencils, pens, markers) ways to keep them all organized. I am learning my style, new techniques and what I enjoy coloring; which at the moment is pretty much most anything, although some of the finer detail areas have to wait for days my wrists or eyes aren't bothering me; and having a magnifying glass also helps too. There is such a wide variety of coloring books out there for adults; if you are looking for something to help de-stress, to help cope maybe with different medical issues you maybe facing or whatever, don't be afraid, just jump on it there and give it a shot; I am sure you will find something that will suit your fancy and they even have coloring books for men too. A lot of these artists have GREAT talent, and it surely shows when you flip through these pages. So, what are you waiting for? Pick up a coloring pencil, kick up your feet, sit back and relax and color yourself a great picture!!!

Very, very disappointed!
I just received this today and I'm totally disappointed in it. Designs are printed on both sides of the page. If it would have said in the description the designs were printed on both sides of the paper I would never have bought it. There's 30 designs and if you use markers of gel pens half of them will be useless from bleed though. Also there's 7 pages that are very light like the ink was running out when this was printed so that drops it down to 23 designs that are printed correctly then when you take in to account bleed though if you use markers like I do then there's only maybe 10-11 pages that are actually usable. It's too much of a hassle to try to return this since it didn't cost that much but I won't be coloring it either. I would not recommend this to anybody and I would absolutely never repurchase.

Relieves anxiety
I bought this for my adult daughter who is often stressed and has some anxiety issues. I saw an article online about coloring helping ease adults' anxiety and it mentioned adult coloring books. I'd never heard of such a thing so I came to Amazon (where else?!?) to research it. Turns out it's really a thing. I thought it sounded like something she might try since the pictures weren't childish. Had I handed her a Winnie the Pooh coloring book, she may not have been as willing to give it a go.

I ordered this book and got her a nice set of colored pencils to go with it. She thought it was a goofy idea but said she'd try it out anyway. Turns out she liked it! The first night she colored for an hour or so after work and she said it really did relax her and help her to unwind. She's been using it for a couple weeks now and hasn't lost interest yet. For just a few dollars, you can't beat it.

The paper is good quality and the images are clear and detailed. The only thing I didn't like was that there are images on both sides of the page, but for the price it was a great way to try it out without spending much.

Dont buy unless you plan to copy them b4 u use!!!
Granted it wasn't expensive but even the Dollar Tree adult coloring books know better not to put art on both sides of the pages. USELESS!!!! You can only color one side because of bleed. You can go to the expense of copying every single
Page b4 you color. Papers cheap. Really disappointed. Artwork is fair to good . that's why I gave it two instead of one star!
