One Sided Coloring Books are perfect for those who love to color with markers or take their pages out of the book to color. Many of these one-image-per-page books also have perforated pages. People seem to be having a hard time finding these so here are several I’ve seen in person and/or colored in.
One Sided Coloring Books for Adults
Sometimes I get a little too excited when I see a book that has until recently only been available in the Asian or European market and that’s how it was with
It’s technically NOT a one-sided book because in the bottom left corner of each page is a cat illustration that when you flip the pages works like a flip-book we baby-boomers will remember. The other side of the page features gorgeous images of the adventures of a bicycle and a cat as they roam through town and countrysides.
The Bicycle Coloring Book follows the fantastic journey of a bicycle exploring an unknown world without its rider. Bursting with intricate illustrations that evoke both Japanese anime and Western street art, the beautiful scenes cry out to be colored in amazing detail. As you color don’t forget to look out for the bicycle’s cute companion (there are a few pages I still haven’t found him in yet) and the illustration details that form a cleverly designed flip book. A stunning gift book that will appeal to lovers of cycling and urban art, as well as to committed coloring-in fans. You can see my current WIP (Work in Progress) From The Bicycle Book here
A favorite for new colorists are Jane Monk’s two books which not only have nice thick perforated pages printed on one side, but they also sport several pages at the beginning of the book with information on the color wheel, how to chose colors, how to blend, shadow and shade using different materials and all sorts of helpful tips for new colorists.
Tangled Treasures Coloring Book – One Sided Coloring Book
I found this gorgeous botanical coloring book while I was on vacation in NYC and I was so happy that I had plenty of room in my suitcase for it as I didn’t want to wait one more second. It’s beautiful beyond measure and then lets talk about the PAPER!! Thick, thick with easy to remove pages perfect for those of you that like to take pictures out to color and then display or frame. These would make fantastic works of art for your home or for a gift. “Floribunda” contains 20 pages of illustrations and an introductory page as well as front and back colored images which are great examples if you are new to shading flowers. It measures 10 by 13 inches and is glue bound into a colorable matte finish cover. It features black and white botanical illustrations. It’s not just me that has gone goofy for this book! Look at some excerpts from Amazon “This is the most beautiful and perfect coloring book for adults I have come across….I own many coloring books, but I only want to color in this one.~ Tom” “This may be the most gorgeous adult coloring books that I have found. Even though I have a ton of adult coloring books, I am very, very picky on what I buy. Ms. Duly’s book is a true work of art. ~ Kantar” All you marker people out there. THIS is the book for you. Copics, Spectrum Noir, Tombows, Sharpies.. whatever you coloring passion.

Budget Friendly Creative Haven one-sided coloring books
One of the first books I bought was a Creative Haven book and all of those are one-sided. The paper isn’t super thick but works nicely with Prismacolors or Crayola Colored Pencils. Art markers will bleed through but we always recommend putting a piece of copy paper behind the image you are coloring not only to prevent bleed through but also to protect the next picture from indentations that might happen if you have a heavy hand when coloring like some of us do.
