This beautiful collection of illustrations were hand-drawn by Hungarian artist Evelyn Gyuris, known under her brand Evelyn Illustrations.
Dream Woods consists of 31 thick card pages, all bound by hand in silky ribbon, with a pearlescent card cover. Evelyn's work has a very native, organic feel, reminiscent of Annie Yates' work. The theme of the book is very much animals and wilderness, a feel of the elements and being at one with nature. There's a mixture of wise animals, flowing leaves, delicate foliage and a couple of flower petal mandalas. Take a look through the slideshow or the video flip through below :)
Even though the book is (in my opinion) underpriced at just over £4, you would be forgiven for thinking that postage from Budapest is the only thing stopping you snapping it up. Amazingly, international shipping is absolutely FREE. I don't know how Evelyn does it; as I say you're getting some beautiful hand-drawn artwork on great cardstock at a cheap price, so it really is a steal with free postage.
Not only is there 31 individual illustrations, but a A3 fold-out surprise waits at the back of the book, in the form of a leafy labyrinth full of hidden hearts for you to discover.
Here is my finished picture, coloured with Harmony Aqua markers and PanPastel.
