...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

...the prettiest coloring book of the season. -
GirlsLife.com

...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. -

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. -

I'm on a mission to inspire the world to be creative!

Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in my inky black and white Wonderland... I'm an illustrator and ink evangelist who prefers pens and pencils to pixels. I create intricate, hand drawn illustrations that adorn colouring books, coffee cups, trainers, walls, beer bottles and even walls!

My creativity is cultivated by a curious imagination and a delight in the fantastic. Much of my work has roots in the flora and fauna that surrounded me growing up on my parent's fish farm in rural Scotland.

Every piece I create starts life as a simple pencil sketch, evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing usually spanning several sheets of paper. I love the tactile nature of the materials I use and the joy of smudgy fingerprints. My delicate hand inked designs intend to charm and delight, inviting you to peer closer and discover the hidden intricacies.

For me, computer generated graphics can feel cold and soulless whereas hand drawing captures a sense of energy and character which no pixel can ever replicate. I'm on a mission to vanquish the vector and champion the (wobbly) hand drawn line.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
Reviewed in Australia on 11 January 2020
The artwork itself is very beautiful, the only reason I gave any stars. I like the treasure hunt and whole concept of the book BUT: The copy I received is not as shown or described.
**Please refer to photos
"......in an inky black-and-white wonderland." NOT black ink on white paper. This whole book is made with yellow/sepia? toned paper. This paper totally changes the colour outcome for all the colour mediums I use; regular, watercolour and metallic coloured pencils, and gel pens....
The book is fully bound and not all pages lie flat so that double spread images are hard to complete. Individual pages can't easily be removed. I have another book like this and ended up removing all the bindings so I could work the pages comfortably.
I would have returned it but that is an upfront cost I can't afford so will use it as best I can.
** Photos were taken against a white sheet. The last photo shows a comparison between the Secret Garden and my "old" book Tropical Wonderland (same style different author).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice imaginative designs
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2019
It's a cool book with lots of interesting themes on the garden/nature subject. The good thing is that it involves a lot of areas where you'd use otherwise underused colours - such as browns, greys, black - for colouring tree trunks and branches, or bugs. So you won't end up with all your "floral" pencils gone and a pack of browns untouched. The less attractive side of the book is that it's quite thick and folds in the middle, so colouring closer to the middle is a bit tricky, and a lot of very small, fine and fiddly details (such as tiny leaves) which any self-respecting pencil - the kind which works ok when blunt and breaks the moment you've sharpened it - will struggle with. I am not keen on inks, I don't even know what it is, so I won't be colouring the entire book and will avoid the very small detailed designs. But that's fine.
Another thing: it's double sided, so you might need to put a piece of paper under the page you are colouring (if the previous one is already done) in order not to stain/transfer colours.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 May 2017
I caught the colouring habit and ordered the secret garden after watching reviews on you tube, the pictures are pretty and intricate and i have spent many hours working on only a handful of pictures so far. The paper is thicker than any of my other books but i have not used pens on it yet. My front cover did arrive with a score on it - it had obviously been marked by a sharp implement when opening the package at the warehouse, it was not enough for me to return it though, I couldn't wait to get started on it.
