Book nerds rule! And what better gift than a book that celebrates bookishness?
You know you’re a Book Nerd when…
- You have a minimum of 5 books on your night table.
- You never once thought the movie was better.
- Your favorite mug says “I’d rather be reading.”
- You use words like librocubicularist in casual conversation (though no conversation about books is ever “casual”).
- You wear a T-shirt that says—what else?
- “Too many books, too little time.”
Charming, affectionate, and unabashed in its celebration of book nerdiness, this little love letter is for every avid reader. Every page is packed with bright, playful, intricately detailed illustrations by Holly Maguire, and wonderful mottoes, definitions, relatable moments, and more.
Reverse Coloring Book
Workman Publishing Company
The book has the colors, you draw the lines: the creative possibilities are endless!
Reverse coloring is a totally new idea in creativity and mindfulness: so simple, and so profoundly satisfying. Artist Kendra Norton created these beautiful and whimsical unfinished watercolors to provide a gentle visual guide for your own creativity and exploration.Trace the shapes, draw in figures, doodle, shade, cover an area with dots. Each page is an invitation to slow down, let your mind drift, and be surprised by your own creativity. And because reverse coloring requires no “staying inside the lines,” it empowers your artistic self-confidence while it calms the mind.
The Reverse Coloring Book™ includes 50 original works of art, printed on sturdy paper that’s single-sided and perforated. All you need is a pen.
I would be more than happy to receive any of these! I hope you find a great gift for your special someone! Have a wonderful day my friends!
