Song, Daria. The Time Garden: A Magical Journey and Coloring Book. USA: Watson-Guptill Publications. 2015.
On a whimsical journey through a cuckoo clock, a little girl follows the clock fairy into the clock and the hidden magical world within her dreams. Throughout the story are intricately drawn sketches of the adventure just yearning to be colored. With a master’s degree in fiber arts, Daria Song’s beautiful artwork shines through. Presented in a beautiful jacket cover, The Time Garden boasts thick pages, lots of creative room and encourages taking time to return to a simpler frame of mind…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
With the included short story inspired by the author’s sense of wonder and mystery of living in a far-away place, it blended perfectly with the black and white illustrations begging to be filled in with color. With the new trend of adult-coloring appearing recently, I was interested in trying the coloring movement and found this book to be the ideal opportunity. Equipped with colored pencils, a bit of time and some artistic ideas, I truly reveled in the pages as the stress slipped away, my thoughts floated past and peace settled within. What a wonderful concept with amazing results (even including my masterpieces).
