  • Happy Bridal Coloring Book
    Who says you're too old to enjoy a coloring book? The latest trend in Japan is coloring books for adults (called "nuri-e," pronounced "noo-REE-eh") -- books that you can sit down and color, much like the ones from our childhood, but with high-quality paper and much more complicated pictures to add color to. These coloring books are printed on high quality Kent paper, so you can use watercolors, watercolor pencils, markers, colored pencils, and use the finished works as decorations or postcards to send to friends. Kent paper is an excellent surface that holds ink well without getting damp, used also by mangaka for their comic work. This particular "nurie" is based on drawings of a beautiful bride done in shoujo manga style by veteran artist Maki Shinjou. A wonderful pastime enjoyed by many here in Japan. 32-pages.
