Product Description

Review

this book has multigenerational appeal. It's not just a coloring book, by any means. Some pages have space where the garden is incomplete so kids (and adults) can create a little flora and fauna of their own." - CoolMomPicks.com "… a coloring book even adults will want to use." - MarthaStewart.com "… a sublime labyrinth of gorgeously detailed coloring pages, and yet it's so much more." - TakesAVillage.net "Artist Johanna Basford is at the forefront of the grown up coloring trend. Her whimsical artwork just makes us want to drop all our responsibilities and color forever ." - Hello Giggles "There are few art forms as meditative, nostalgic and all-around blissful as the coloring book.Consider trading in your yoga mat for a set of markers and peruse the gorgeous gardens of Basford's imagination." - Huffington Post "… the prettiest coloring book of the season." - GirlsLife.com "

The Secret Garden is a fantastic colouring book. Johanna Basford is one of my top favourite artists, and she has made hit after hit with her colouring books. This is as the name suggests- All about gardens, and what comes with them. There is a bit of a quest in it, as you search for the hidden items in the pictures. The paper quality is the cream of the crop, and takes many mediums well. The paper will bleed with some markers, or pens but it is minor and usually looks like a shadow.

Bought this as a gift for my wife. There are tons of designs in the book, some being a little more challenging than others. She definitely enjoys it. Just keep it away from the kids. They love it as well and if you spend any amount of time working on a page, just to return to find your 3 year old has completed it for you, you may find yourself opening up a bottle of wine.

Beautiful. I would definitely suggest getting fine-liner markers though, with pencil crayons you have to continuously sharpen your pencil which can get irritating. This book is more of a challenge than other books and is less for relaxing and more for a focused project.

STILL BEAUTIFUL THOUGH. I am almost too scared to colour in it because it's so beautiful

BEWARE! - Only use dry media. The paper is too porous for wet media like ink or felt pen. Also, unfortunately, the paper doesn't have quite enough tooth for me for colour pencils. I'm having quite good fun with CarbOthello pastel pencils. However, even then I've had to break the binding of the book. It is far to tightly bound to lie flat enough or for any colouring to approach the book's spine comfortably.

Beautiful, imaginative, finely detailed pictures for colouring! Some reviewers commented on the thickness of the paper. Using pencil crayons, I had no problem. I suppose the paper wouldn't work as well for felt-tip pens, however.

This is a lovely book. It reminds me of the Doodle Art we'd spend hours creating back in our teens. I'm using papermate thin markers, official Doodle Art markers and crayola markers. Some of the darker colours do bleed through but not too bad. A good set of coloured pencils is on my shopping list.
i was going to photo copy but started doing them and well, didn't stop. :-) It's also nice to keep them all in one book. When this one gets full perhaps i'll just order another. :-)
it's a very reasonable price and is a great way to pass time, meditate and relax your brain from day to day stresses or just to be creative using colour.
i don't think i mentioned ... I'm 54 and just started colouring again. You all should try it. :-)

I absolutely love this book! The detail is amazing and I can totally get lost in the beautiful drawings. Great way to pass time and clear the mind. I use Prismacolor and Crayola Pencil Crayons. For a great added touch I also use Prismacolor Blending Pencil which even adds a nice touch to my colouring. Adult colouring has become my new favourite pass time and I can't seem to get enough. Definitely recommend. Will be buying Enchanted Forest and Lost Ocean in the future.

the book completely met our expectations. the paper was high quality. the drawing was challenging in a good way to colour and the results were beautiful.

Many hours of quiet fun akin to mediation in many ways. This was a gift for my wife and she loves the book. Use quality pencils and pens, it's worth it.
