Bohemian adventures by Valori Wells is a book of 16 Moroccan themed poster designs on 8 pull-out posters (printed front and back). The pages are perforated and you will need to detach the poster to colour it in. The paper is thick with a bit of a tooth (texture) to it so if you use pencils to colour either you will get some white background showing through or need to blend more than usual. Markers should work well, although if you use alcohol markers be sure you don’t mind losing the design on the reverse. The ink is dark black and on some the lines are thick to suit the graphic poster style. One of the posters (a poppy design) is grayscale with a black background. Each poster measures 77cm (30″) x 49cm (19″). One side of each poster is fully illustrated, the other side has more of a decorative border to enable you to create your own drawings or add lettering if you so wish.
The designs range from florals, butterflies, elephants, abstracts and camels. Other than the camel design the others did not strike me as particualary Moroccan – the elephant and peacock designs seem more Indian to me and the florals just seemed like pretty floral patterns but I’m no expert on Moroccan design. I love the elphant, the camels and the peacocks. It is a nice book and a lovely concept. This would be a great book to do as a family around a table as each poster is large enough that everyone can colour at once and as they are patterns it doesn’t matter so much if you are colouring upside down.
Also I will shortly be reviewing Awesome Town by Melissa Averinos which is another poster book in the same series.
I was kindly sent a copy from the distributor, However all thoughts and comments expressed are my own honest opinion.
