It’s not often we feature a coloring book here at Novel Novice. In fact, we’ve never featured a coloring book here before … but as they say, there’s a first for everything. And as it’s Prom Week, it’s fitting that The Fashion Coloring Book from our friends at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is the first coloring book to be featured on Novel Novice!
You see, we’ve teamed up with HMH all this week to feature some great prom-perfect books. Besides catching all our features here, be sure to like HMH on Facebook & follow them on Twitter for more great Prom-themed contests & features.
More than fifty iconic designers (Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Miu Miu, Christopher Kane, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen) and looks are featured in this one-of-a-kind coloring book that pays homage to fashion. Included are hundreds of outfits and accessories for fashionistas and budding designers to complete and reimagine. It’s not just a coloring book—it’s inspirational; it’s creative; it’s all about fashion; and it’s loads of fun!
I’ve long loved coloring books, and when HMH sent me a copy of The Fashion Coloring Book to review, I couldn’t resist. I mean, for starters, it came with a box of crayons. SCORE! But more importantly, this is easily one of the coolest coloring books ever.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. What is Sara, a grown woman, doing with coloring books? Well, here’s the thing. I can’t draw. But I love pretty pictures! And whenever I’m home sick in bed, one of my favorite activities is to fill in coloring books. Most of the ones I keep stashed on hand are of the Disney Princess variety, because I love coming up with new ways to color in their pretty dresses. With The Fashion Coloring Book, you’re given even more freedom to explore your fashion savvy coloring skills. The pages are filled with line drawings of designer duds, accessories, hair styles, and more. It’s a great way to pass the time and express your passion for fashion. The fact that the designs in this book are from actual couture designers just makes it that much cooler!
