Scholastic published the first official Harry Potter coloring book in November of 2015. The book was wildly popular and many more followed. The Harry Potter Postcard Coloring Book is a variation on the first book. Scholastics took 20 popular pictures from that book and turned them into postcards that you can color and either keep or send to family and friends.
Inside this book you will find images from all aspects of the series, including the four Hogwarts House crests and items found in Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, the shop owned by Fred and George Weasley.
It is too soon to know if this book will have full color images of the art at the back of the book, like the other coloring books in this series, but I would be surprised if it didn't. This book does not have pictures in the back like the larger version does. It only contains postcards that you can color. Also, the art was designed by multiple artists, including MinaLima, which gives a nice variety to the works.
I bought this book and have to admit something. It was smaller than I expected. This was stupid on my part, of course, because it is a collection of postcards, but for some reason I thought it would be the same size as the other coloring books in this line. So, in case anyone else is thinking the same as I was, be aware that the book is the same size as a postcard, because that's what it contains.
Prevent Bleeding Onto The Back Of A Page...
As I researched the Harry Potter coloring books I came across someone who experimented with various pens and pencils to find out which ones bled through to the back of a page (where there is another image to be colored), and which did not. Here are the results of that testing:
Safe To Use (no ink bleeding)
India ink pens
Avoid (causes ink bleeding)
Alcohol based markers
Water based markers
I made a video of this postcard so you can get a better idea of what it looks like.
