Adult Colouring Books

The adult colouring book that started it all, Secret Garden – An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book. Lately I’m sure you have all noticed the craze that’s sweeping the nation: Colouring books for adults! A great way to wind down after a long day at work – don’t forget the cup of tea.


Secret Garden ($23)

After great success and popularity, artist Johanna Basford has created her second colouring book Enchanted Forest. This book is full of woodland creatures and scenery that looks like it’s straight from a fairy tale.

The Artists Edition of Secret Garden has 20 illustrations from the original Secret Garden book but on thicker quality paper and is only illustrated on one side of the paper so that you can easily tear off and frame your finished piece.
