This Dover publication contains thirty mandalas to colour by Alberta Hutchinson. All the mandalas are circular and all are very detailed and intricate. The themes vary a great deal and include patterns, leaves, insects, fish, the sun and even one with Buddhas.
This is one of those books that evokes mixed feelings in me. Whilst I think the artist is very skilled and I have enjoyed colouring some of the mandalas, I simply don't like some of them.
As is so often the case, the mandalas are printed on both sides of the paper making colouring in difficult. Happily, the only text that appears on the mandala pages is a page number. If you like intricate mandalas this book is well worth exploring.
