When I made the first 20-page colouring book mock-up, I was under the impression that we had about three or four little people coming to the wedding. After glancing at the guest list, I realized that it's more in the ballpark of up to fifteen. It's too late though, I've fallen in love with the colouring book idea. It must be done.
Here are a few photos of the mockup. The real ones will all be sewn (saddle stitched) with cream-coloured, heavy card-stock covers; either black or eggplant linen book tape on the spines; the little kiddy's name and a different animal on each cover.
And yes, I purposefully chose the quirkiest animals that I could find. I scanned the caricature that Luc and I had done at the wedding soiree in January and tooled it around a bit in photoshop. I'm happy with the way that it turned out - it matches the line-drawing style of the strange looking animals.
