Oh my goodness.  Daria Song has done it again.  She has brought us yet another gorgeous adult coloring book to fill up our evenings with fun and relaxation.

And she really brought her game with this one.

Like her other coloring books, The Night Voyage also tells a story.  The story is about a little girl.  It is the night before her birthday and the thing she wants the most is for her parents to be home on their birthday, as they are gone on a business trip.  She is surrounded by gifts, but they are not what she wants.

The story then unfolds across the pages as she is off in the night delivering presents to people all around.  The question is, is it a dream or is it real?

Oh my goodness.  The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous!  Breathtaking really!  Most of of the illustrations are actually two page spreads, so you will have a lot of work cut out to get just one image of the story done, but the illustrations allow you to be free with your coloring style.

The paper quality in The Night Voyage is what you have come to expect from a Daria Song coloring book.  The pages are nice and thick.  However, they are two sided!  So use coloring tools that can bleed through at your own risk.  Unless you don't care about the image on the opposing side of the page I would definitely recommend against using alcohol based inks!

Also, since they are double sided, you cannot remove a page to frame that you really love without disrupting the flow of the story.  Also, the since they are mostly two paged spreads, framing might be kind of tricky anyways.

And then, at the end of the book we get a little treat!  There is a card back there that you can color and cut out and mail off to a friend!  I love it!  Thought I would love it more if they would come out with Daria Song illustrated postcards or cards in general.  I will probably color the card that is in this book at some point in time, but I don't know if I will be able to bring myself to cut it out.

Gorgeous book for sure.  If you love her other coloring books, you are going to absolutely adore The Night Voyage!
