The Alte Oper Frankfurt (Frankfurt, Germany opera house) has selected the Pink Peony
I Flower Mandala for it’s 2016-2017 brochure and 500 posters hung throughout the

DECEMBER 1, 2015: 52 FLOWER MANDALAS: AN ADULT COLORING BOOK FOR INSPIRATION AND
Just in time for Christmas shopping, my new coloring book for adults, published by
Diversion Press. Artist Emily Sper has transformed 52 of the Flower Mandalas into
a family of illustrations that invite colorists to create their own works of art,
experimenting with form, pattern, shading, and layering in a deeply personal way.
Each illustration is printed on a single page facing an inspirational quotation with
a box above it for writing or drawing reflections.
SEPTEMBER 30, 2014: FIFTY-TWO FLOWER MANDALAS BOOK
I've recently completed my book Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, a distillation of what
I've learned so far from psychotherapy, Buddhism, surviving a near-death experience,
and 60+ years on the planet. The book is a compilation of my Flower Mandala images
paired with meditative quotations and accompanying essays on a broad range of topics.
I’m currently looking for a publisher. Here’s a PDF preview of the book: http://www.davidbookbinder.com/uploads/Fifty-Two%20Flower%20Mandalas%20Preview.pdf.
