Magical Jungle

An Inky Expedition & Colouring Book

Summary

From the international bestselling creator of Lost Ocean comes a beautiful new colouring book that takes you on a wondrous expedition through the jungle.

Follow ink evangelist and queen of colouring, Johanna Basford down an inky trail through Magical Jungle and discover a forgotten world of flora and fauna just waiting to be coloured in. Through intricate pen and ink illustrations, colour-inners of all ages are invited to explore an exotic rainforest teeming with creatures large and small. Encounter speckled tree frogs and dainty hummingbirds, prowling tigers and playful monkeys. Let your imagination run wild in the leafy treetop canopy or find yourself drawn to the delicate world of sensational blossoms and tropical plants below. There are ancient relics to be found along the way, each one leading toward the mystical treasure hidden at the heart of the magical jungle. Only the bravest, most inquisitive colourers will discover what lies hidden at the end of this inky quest.

For Magical Jungle Johanna has picked a crisp ivory paper that accentuates and compliments your chosen colour palette. The smooth, untextured pages allows for beautiful blending or gradient techniques with coloured pencils, or are perfect for pens, allowing the nib to glide evenly over the surface without feathering.
