I love Scandanavian style art (see my reviews of similar books here and here), and indeed the colourful, patternful fabrics you often see in IKEA. I mention this because Zeena Shah is predominantly a textile designer with a big love for Nordic style, and this is reflected perfectly in Scandia.
In the pages of this book you will find delicately illustrated animals, flowers and objects which are all intricately detailed and very whimsical. The animals are representative of the Scandi countries, including Bears, Arctic Fox, Otters, Deer and more. Everything in this book is filled to the brim with pattern and texture, every white space filled with zig zags, lines, shapes and leaves.
The book is 25cm square and has a very clean look about it with its white and teal palette. This minimal look allows the papercut cover to shine, sure to make Scandia pop off the shelves amongst all the other colouring books.
Here's my finished page, coloured with Marco Raffine pencils and a black Zig marker for the background.
