Dover Coloring Book

Text Box with description of Book

Sato has used a variety of cubes, bars, "steps" and other patterns to create designs that open the doors to creativity, because there are many ways to perceive each picture. Some are simple and others are quite complex.
    Much of the work in this book leads me to suspect that Sato was a fan of M.C. Escher, not to the extent of Magic Mirror Images by Hop David, but little subtleties, like the "steps that go nowhere" (one included here from page 14) or the blocks that are built on different "planes," but interlock into one pattern (see page 8). In all, this is a fun book that would be suitable for even younger colorists.
    The pictures presented here are from pages 1, 8, 14, 20, and 21 respectively.
