I recieved this for review. As always, my reviews are fair and unbias!

From the artist and the publisher that brought you the hugely successful Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest – this special artist’s edition features 20 beautiful, pull out art prints for colouring in. Colouring fans of all ages will enjoy immersing themselves in a selection of the most popular artworks from the original book, now presented in a new, large-scale format for maximum colouring enjoyment. Each detailed illustration is printed on high-quality card and can be removed easily for framing or craft projects.

Secret Garden: Artist’s Edition is something I can guarantee everyone will love. Whether it’s expressing your creativity, looking to start a new hobby, make art and colour on-the-go, there’s something for everyone. For me, colouring with the Artist’s Edition gave me creative ideas and I loved seeing a completed picture that I would proudly hang up and display. Johanna Basford has created something inspirational, visionary and stimulating – whether you’re young or old – Secret Garden will bring out your inventive side and before you know it, you’ll have a masterpiece right before your eyes. 

Like above, the first picture I brought colour to was a beautiful gated paradise and is still my favourite. I loved that being monochrome, I could add the colours I wanted and bring my own personality and style into the picture and it gave me creative freedom to do that. Of all the books I’ve seen alike, Johanna’s is a top contender for the most originative designs and sleek, beautiful pictures. I can’t wait to complete the entire book full of bursting colour – five stars worth design. 

Captivating and original, if you’re looking for your first – or fiftieth – colouring book, Secret Garden will win your heart.

I mean this when I say; EVERYONE.

happy reading (and colouring!)
