Coloring for Adults is a fantastic book that starts off by explaining the mechanics, the basics of colouring.  From materials, techniques and even challenges conventional thinking about colouring.  This is surprisingly interesting to read.

The rest of the book features over 100 detailed and intricate colouring pages.  Each page is printed on only one side, so that any bleeding through the page does not destroy the image behind it, this is a huge plus as it means you get to enjoy all of the illustrations included, rather than just half of them.

Sit back and put your feet up this Christmas as you delve into the dark and mysterious world of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.  In 1806, England is still fighting Napoleon and the days are rather grim.  The world of magic and intrigue has long since dissipated into the annals of history, leaving the English people jaded when it comes to the slightest thing mystical.  

In the wilds of Yorkshire, scholars uncover the existence of one Mr Norrell, a man who still practices the art of magic and indeed thrills, excites and even scares when he dares to demonstrate his abilities to them.

Mr Norrell makes his way to London where his magical powers prove beneficial to the country as he not only resurrects a young woman, taken before her time, but summons a fleet of ghostly ships to terrify and repel the French invasion heading for the shores of England.

Norrell becomes entangled in a competition of ego, when a young Jonathan Strange appears and seems to also have the gift of magic.  The pair battle and delve into the darkest of arts, leaving them and many more besides, open to the ravages of magic.
