As you probably all know I am a great fan of anything illustration-related and love to fill my own notebooks with little scribbles. With that in mind it won’t surprise you that the next book I’ve selected to share with you from my bookshelf is Johanna Basford’s latest masterpiece, ‘Enchanted Forest‘.
Johanna’s book is a labyrinth of hand-drawn intricate designs – peer closely and you discover her world of elaborate and hidden illustrations. Taking a pen to her fairytale-like creations is both a mesmerising and thoroughly relaxing experience.
You may have heard of Johanna’s previous book, ‘Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book‘? It was with this internationally-bestselling title Johanna convinced the world that colouring in is no longer just for children. (It also outsold the best-selling cookery book in France!)
If that isn’t enough to convince you that this trend is on the rise, the bestsellers and most wished for charts on Amazon are currently littered with colouring books for adults.
Thank you Johanna for bringing back the colouring book!
