Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt Colouring Book by Johanna Basford
Secret Garden is not only a colouring book, but also an inky treasure hunt. Hidden within are all kinds of creatures and curiosities to be sought. The book opens with a list of things to be found, throwing down the eye spy gauntlet. 63 beatles, 20 songbirds, 116 butterflies, 1 shark... The pages are all black and white, naturally. Bare for you to either embellish in ebony ink or to flood with colour. I fully support both pursuits; there's a time and a place for monochrome elitism, this is not it.
Johanna Basford is an illustrator and ink evangelist who creates intricate and hand-drawn illustrations rooted in the floral and fauna that surrounds her home in rural Scotland.
Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in an inky black-and-white wonderland. This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations – all waiting to be brought to life through colouring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. And there are also bits of the garden that still need to be completed by you. Appealing to all ages, the intricately-realized world of the Secret Garden is both beautiful and inspirational.Delivery times from our international suppliers can take 15-20 days.
