I love these coloring books! There are so many details to work on I haven't even finished this book yet but I am buying Lost Ocean asap. For those worrying about the reviews stating bleed through, YES typical markers will not work on this paper. Here are a couple pen ideas (both I have used and won't bled unless you try hard) Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens, 20 Color Pack Stabilo 88 25-color Wallet Set I only rated it 4 out of 5 because in this book I found that many of the same designs are repeated so you feel as if you are doing the same flower or plant over and over on different pages. That is my only compaint and it is not noticeable unless you plan on coloring every page.

If you are a Copic fan (or want to use any markers), DO NOT GET THIS BOOK! Just received this coloring book, and will be promptly returning it, as there are pictures on both sides of the page, so you can ONLY color with colored pencils--no markers. Even if you don't care that half the book would be wasted by bleeding through the pages, the dark lines would show through to the front of the page you were working on, so it would be ruined too.

Love the beautiful pictures and love coloring in the book BUT I'm using pens and they bleed on the next page. Very disappointed. Half the book will be ruined.

This is such an amazing coloring book. I've used different mediums; soft pastels, color pencils, inktense pencils for water coloring, staedtlers and stabilo 88. The paper is of great quality and take on the colors very well! The inktense did not bleed through when activated.

Very nice coloring book. Interesting but common designs. Prismacolor pencils and watercolor markers worked well. Didn't bleed through. Three stars due to: One huge negative with this authors books are that the images are on both sides of each page of the book. This feature does not allow for framing both colored pages. Additional negative is that the book is bound with no perforation for easy removal of the pages. I don't know many people who color a page while it is inside the book.

I rediscovered coloring a couple of years ago and love the many adult oriented choices now available. While this one has beautiful designs there are a couple of major issues. Since pages are printed on both sides gel pens (which I use for highlighting & accent) sometimes bleed through or I get indentations from pressing down with a sharp pencil for bolder colors. The bigger issue is that the designs on many pages go right into the binding making it impossible to color all of the picture. Very poor design for a coloring book. The Color Me Your Way books are much better as they are printed on one side, are on a heavier paper so gel pens and markers don't bleed through, and are spiral bound so they lay flat.

Your books are all beautiful and wonderful, but why not either make the pages thicker or one sided, so people can use markers or ink if they choose to without ruining the picture on the back of the page?

I love this! Yes, you should use colored pencils but I use them anyway because of the fine points and color. Beautiful artwork. A lot of relaxing fun.

I love Johanna's art. She puts so much detail into her books. Is amazing how relaxing coloring can be. I've started it and it is taking me a while to do because of all the detail but I'm loving every bit of it! Waiting on Secret Garden and will be pre-ordering Lost Ocean as soon as it's ready.
