Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another stellar colouring book If you're a fan of her other colouring books, this one won't let you down. Beautifully done and I look forward to colouring them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book! This colouring book has more larger spaces (less detailed) pages than her other books, especially compared to "Lost Ocean." It has many flowers and leaves to colour in. I'm enjoying colouring in it, but I wouldn't say its my favourite book by her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The original adult coloring book! Johanna Basford is the pioneer that started this coloring book craze! Her books are all amazingly detailed and mesmerizing. I love that its has different designs in each book and that once you've finished coloring, you feel a sense of accomplishment. This is not something that is boring mandala circles but something that has dept and art. I recommend all her books if you want to get into coloring and I do believe it helps with mental wellness as well as creativity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Larger details Of all of Johanna Basford's books, this one has the least amount of small details. Compare it to Lost Ocean and you'll see what I mean. The paper quality and larger designs makes it easier to colour with marker if you so please. Some pictures have a lot of white space for you to add your own design. Love the colour palette page at the back! A good mix of double page spreads, and single pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is even better than the last three. The paper is amazing, thick great quality. It's got tips, and a page in the back that you are suppose to use for testing out your art supplies. I was actually very surprised when I tested out my supplies and realised that you could use sharpies if you press lightly, you do in fact see the colour through the back but only as a light tone and not a complete bleed through. Markers are the same way, I tried out my Scholar markers and it barely showed through on the other side. Even using Sharpies on the inside cover of the book is okay as long as you dont mind some show through of the colour though the covers are pretty thick. The paper is amazing, I've barely started colouring it in and already I love it more than the other books. Plus it's white. Like white white. The designs on the pages are slightly bigger than her other books with not quite as many intricate spots. Johanna did say that she had left spots on the two page spreads so that there wasn't any thing going in to the spine of the book, however with these books being published in the USA it doesn't quite do that. Some of the spreads do go in to the spine, and some don't. Either way this book is amazing, with some great art.
