Persian Carpets Colouring Book


It's Spring! To celebrate, from now through April 29th, selected digital titles have been marked down by 40%! For more Spring savings, visit the Spring sale page.

Colouring has gained much-deserved attention of late as a calming and satisfying activity for people of all ages. This compilation of interesting old carpet and rug designs is intended for use by teens and adults. These rugs were beautifully and carefully crafted by people – not computers. There is a certain symmetry to the patterns, however there is also a certain irregularity to them as a result of their hand-crafted origin, which should hold even greater appeal to the 'right brain' than perfect lines and circles would.

The colourer can approach each image as a sort of artifact in need of refurbishment. Perhaps there is a border or line here or there that could benefit from being traced in black or dark gray? Perhaps a repeating pattern fades out at some point and would need to be filled in by the artist? In a sense, you are sprucing up these elegant old designs and making them fresh and bright once again.

So go ahead and choose a design that catches your eye! Enjoy hours of pleasant and delicate colouring and 'tweaking'. Relish both the relaxing process and the beautiful, satisfying result!    

Contents: 50 rugs/carpets images in black and white format, and general colouring suggestions and tips

What are the advantages of a ‘print on demand’ colouring book? You need only print the images that interest you (saves paper!) and you may print the same image more than once (colour the same image in a different way a second time, or make a fresh start if your hot chocolate spattered on the first one!). Print the images on whatever type of paper you prefer (thin? thick? watercolour?) and colour without the awkwardness of a book binding that bends the page. Store your colouring pages in your favourite folder, or hang them up to enjoy them once they're completed!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
