The Night Voyage by Daria Song - Coloring Book Review

29358300The Night Voyage: A Magical Adventure and Coloring Book by Daria Song
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published September 13th 2016 by Watson-Guptill

This third adult coloring book in Daria Song's Time series follows the little girl on a new nighttime adventure when the conductor of her toy train comes to life and helps her distribute gifts across the world.

The Night Voyage is an evocatively illustrated story of a little girl who is swept away on the eve of her birthday by her toy train conductor on a magical journey to distribute gifts around the globe. Taking devotees of The Time Garden and The Time Chamber on an imaginative new adventure, The Night Voyage continues Daria Song's wildly successful series with the beautifully intricate art that her fans have come to love, featuring a world of paper cranes, penny-farthing bicycles, trolleys, cityscapes, and hot air balloon-filled skies.
 



Yet another beautiful book by Daria Song. Unlike her previous books there's only so many words that tell the story and a lot more illustration.

There's only so much you really need to know about it before you just let yourself go in not only the world it creates but the world you'll be adding to.

With each turn of the page I found myself falling in love more and more with each picture. It's absolutely wonderful.



I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

  1. That sounds wonderful. It also sounds like it should be a children's book in its own right...

    I haven't gotten too much into the adult coloring craze yet. I think it's because I spend a good number of days coloring with my three year old already! :)

    1. The stories are totally something I'd share with children.
      I was mainly introduced to adult coloring books since I'm a designer and my art teacher would always mention them when we had to do certain practices. Of course this was before they became what they are now so I kind of jumped when I had more variety.
