Every Little Thing: A Flat Vernacular Coloring Book by Payton Cosell Turner

Book Description:  Enter a magical world filled with your favorite little things.

Wander through a 1980’s-inflected dreamscape of stuffed animals and boom boxes, dance along with a joyful parade of woodland creatures--each page of this coloring book invites you to explore a different kaleidoscope-like universe of pattern, shape and image. From the mind of Payton Cosell Turner—the creative force behind the celebrated wallpaper studio Flat Vernacular—comes this all-ages ode to the wondrous objects that make life beautiful. The coloring journey you take through these exquisite hand-drawn pages will inspire and delight.

My Thoughts:  I'm in love with adult coloring books.  Ironically, I didn't like to color as a child so this books are like a second chance at childhood.
An interesting "thing" about these adult coloring books is that the pictures are smaller not those big happy faces one might find in a child's coloring book.
Now, in this coloring book one will either like it or hate it (my opinion), simply because the pictures in this book are repetitive.  One after another of the same item....much like the cover of the  coloring book.
I found that the receptive figures made it more relaxing for me to color... I know it sounds storage but I like the coloring over and over.
Ms.  Turner who drew the figures/items in this coloring book also force behind the wallpaper studio Flat Vernacular.  Beautiful objects for individuals to color.
This coloring book makes a wonderful get well "card" for a sick person or for that home bound person who enjoys coloring.
Or better yet, grab a coloring book for yourself and enjoy the relaxation of coloring!
