One Zentangle A Day is a beautiful interactive book teaching the principles of Zentangles as well as offering fun, related drawing exercises. Zentangles are a new trend in the drawing and paper arts world. The concept was started by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing, by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. Each mark is called a "tangle," and you combine various tangles into patterns to create "tiles" or small square drawings. This step-by-step book is divided into 6 chapters, each with 7 daily exercises. Each exercise includes new tangles to draw in sketchbooks or on tiepolo (an Italian-made paper), teaches daily tile design, and offers tips on related art principles, and contains an inspirational "ZIA" (Zentangle Inspired Art) project on a tile that incorporates patterns, art principals, and new techniques.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book on Zentangle If I could only buy one book, this is the one I would buy. It has more information in it than several other books, and I keep going back to it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This book was a disappointment for me. I thought that there would be more contemplative Zen ideology and truly daily projects for a year. Instead there is a lot on the materials, and the patterns are grouped in clusters with fewer than I had hoped.
