One Zentangle a Day : A 6-week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun Paperback
Part of the One A Day series
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.

I really liked some of the ideas in this book for expanding on Zentangle inspired art. Borrowed from the library, but may purchase to have on hand as a resource.

This is an excellent "teaching" book for anyone that is interested in learning the art of "zentangles". Many patterns & ideas included.
