Relax, this isn’t a novel. Instead it’s a collection of fabulous dot-to-dots for adults. It has super detailed dots that make wonderful pictures for everyone to enjoy.
I’m not sure I’d be putting the pictures I made out of this on the wall (they don’t remove from the binding very well), but they are very beautiful. And time consuming. Just make sure that you’re in a solid place for doing the connecting, I tried in a car and it didn’t work out so well.
I’m not sure on its claimed ‘anti-stress’ properties, because I’m a bit of a perfectionist by trade, but it was pretty sweet to do. You can do free-hand or ruler (I tried a combination of both), and it looks nice.
I’d highly recommend this book to anyone with an artistic fancier in their family or friends. It says ‘I know you are arty’ but doesn’t exactly buy into the ‘Adult Colouring Books’ faze of the moment. And if your friend/family member is hopeless at colouring? Well, they can at least join dots and enjoy it.
