From the creator of the worldwide bestsellers Secret Garden and Lost Ocean, a beautiful new adult coloring book, printed on ivory paper and featuring delicate tangles of holly and ivy, bauble-laden Christmas trees, and mountains of exquisitely wrapped gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still enjoying even though Christmas is over What I like about Johanna's colouring books is that they have detail without being too detailed (requiring very sharp pencils) and she doesn't fill in with black on her own. I get to choose any and all of the colours. Some books have too much black filled in when I want the choice of whether a space is black or not. It's still snowy outside so I'm going to keep colouring in this book until March 20th, the first day of Spring. Then I can move on to Secret Garden. Summer I'll start on Lost Ocean and transition to Enchanted Forest for fall. Where will I fit in any new colouring books? Not sure, but if they are by Johanna Basford, I'll find time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best book Johanna's put out! I'm a huge fan of Johanna Basford's colouring books but this one is truly my favorite! Why you ask, especially when there are so many less pictures in this book compared to the first three. Well let me tell you! There are 37 beautifully illustrated pages that are all ONE SIDED!! yay! each page is perforated so you can easily remove them if you so choose and there's none of the designs going into the binding. Paper is thick lovely ivory paper perfect for coloured pencils and being one sided you can use markers if you choose, just be sure to put some paper in between so it won't bleed through to the next design. Highly recommend this book especially if you're a fan of Johanna's it's just beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Christmas polar bear makes this worth buying:) But so much more fun here. I love the Polar Bear illustration and there an endless amount of other fun ones like birds, owls, ornaments, trees...and they are all on one side paper so you can use markers. Need I say more this is a must.
