6th Anniversary Celebration - - Color My World
Remember the days when you would spend hours sitting at the kitchen table or curled up in a bean bag chair with a coloring book and a box of crayons or colored pencils? Well, those days aren't as far in your past as you may think. Inspired by Diana Gabaldon's bestselling books and the STARZ original series, Outlander (who doesn't love Jamie?) and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones, Penguin Random House has published two beautiful coloring books designed just for us!
THE OFFICIAL OUTLANDER COLORING BOOK (Bantam Trade Paperback - Oct. 27, 2015 - $16.95) is a beautifully bound 10 x 10 inch book containing 45 original black and white illustrations inspired by scenes from Outlander. Accompanying each illustration is description of - or passage from - the scene depicted.
THE OFFICIAL A GAME OF THRONES COLORING BOOK (Bantam Trade Paperback - October 27, 2015 - $16.95 also contains 45 exclusive illustrations depicting scenes from the popular HBO series. Drawn by world-renowned illustrators, this will be a treasured keepsake for fans of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire as well as HBO's Game of Thrones.
The illustrations in both coloring books are incredibly beautiful and detailed, including pictures ranging in coloring skill level from beginner to I-need-an-art-degree-to-do-that. So, no matter how skilled - or unskilled - you may be, there's something for you in each of these books. The list price is $16.95 but if you're an Amazon Prime member, the price is $10.17. Considering the quality of both the illustrations as well as the construction of the book itself, it really is a worthy purchase at either price.
Do you enjoy coloring?
Are you a beginner (like me) or are your coloring projects worthy of framing?
Are you counting down the days until the return of Outlander?
Do you think Jamie should be required to remove his shirt in every episode? (Yeah, I do too.) *grin*
One randomly chosen person leaving a comment before 11:59 pm (EST) Thursday, November 5th will receive the Outlander coloring book and a second person will receive the Game of Thrones coloring book.
Many thanks to Penguin Random House for the giveaway copies!
