The illustrations are an amalgamation of work by seven Canadian artists, all diverse and unique in their style, all having a part in creating vast hand-drawn worlds and nature snapshots for you to colour. The book was crowdfunded on Kickstarter, like a lot of the best books out there, reaching over $21,000 CAD in just over a month of going live! This is definitely not a book you want to miss, especially if you're into realism and landscape scenes like me.
What else can I tell you? I think it's pretty clear I'm in love with this book! There's quantity as well as quality in equal measure, and I just think it's one of the most artistic, well-put-together colouring books around at the moment. This kind of standard comes at a price of course, especially to international buyers who have to pay shipping. Altogether with postage, a copy of this book will cost you just over £17 if you live in the UK, and almost $24 to mainland USA.
Here's my finished picture, completed with Staedtler Triplus pens (no bleed). I'm planning on colouring the whole set of thumbnails as mini-artworks in the coming months, so keep a look out for that on my Facebook page!
