There are so many different traditions regarding Christmas and the winter holidays. Christmas trees, wreaths, holiday bells, paper snowflakes, gingerbread, gifts, candles, decorations that include both lavish and lovingly handmade ornaments, poinsettias, holly leaves, and so much more!
In Silent Nights, artist Jennifer Lankenau manages to include so many of these ideas, that it’s hard to believe she may have missed any! Anyone who loves Christmas will enjoy spending time in the pages of this book, adding your own colors to the variety of designs inside.

While Jennifer’s work is highly detailed, the designs in the book range from simpler ones with large spaces that even a beginner will enjoy, to highly intricate and complex designs that will challenge the advanced colorist. A couple of the designs have a mandala center, but additional details fill out the page. Many of the designs are filled with greenery in well-designed “scenes” that remind me of the way someone would decorate their table or door before a party. As someone who has always loved the holidays, I found this book a delightful reminder of the season.
