I now have both full size and mini versions of all three of my current colouring books. Here’s a photo to show the difference in sizes between them:
The mini books are all 5.25 x 8 inches. The full size mandala books are 8 x 10, and the patterns book is 8.5 x 11. If I’d thought about it, I’d have put some pencils in the photo to give a better idea of scale. The mini books are about an inch taller than a new pencil.
Personally, I think I like the smaller books better, when it comes to colouring. They’re just so handy for carrying around, and it doesn’t take as long to finish an image. But the big ones are nice when you want to spend more time.
I’ll probably do travel versions of all my future books too, so long as the designs can be adapted for a smaller format. The illustrations in these books worked well, although some needed modifying so the spaces weren’t too tiny to colour.
Talking of future books, right now I have three in various stages of completion – book 4 in my main Peaceful Mind series, which is abstract drawings, a black page version of Easy Mandalas, and my first mandala book for kids. I’m not sure yet which will be ready first, but hope to get at least one out before the end of April. 🙂
