A new Johanna Basford book is a cause for mass excitement in the colouring community, and this latest addition was no exception. In fact I think Magical Jungle may be even *more* anticipated than the previous titles, as Johanna promised us so many additions and improvements that us die-hard colourists would really appreciate. Let's go through the list:
Where a lot of people were disappointed with the paper, intricacy and non-storybook feel of Lost Ocean, Magical Jungle takes us back to the cohesive fairytale style of Enchanted Forest that everyone loves. Before I go any further, here's Johanna herself to show you the book in its entirety (I thought it would be better to hear her talking about each illustration rather than me post the usual slideshow of images).
Overall, Magical Jungle is everything I'd hoped for and more, with so many different types of illustrations like floral wreaths & spheres, double-page ribbons and draping canopies that allow you to create the scene underneath. Here are the pages I've completed so far. Originally I put in a very subtle pastel background of the lizard laying on a log, but it didn't turn out how I imagined it so I erased it all and created a literal 'Concrete Jungle' scene! Forgive my drawing skills; I'm still stuck in primary school when it comes to drawing people!
And now for the giveaway! I have a spare copy of Magical Jungle that could end up on your doormat! To be in with a chance, enter via the Rafflecopter below. Ends on 18th August 2016, open worldwide. Good Luck!

Thank you for the review of the book, I'm so happy it's not as intricate as the others, and that it doesn't go into the spine also the perforated pages are wonderful, I like this idea way more than the removable book cover because they are much easier to frame. Johanna did an awesome job on this.

I love colouring in, but find it hard to buy suitable pens that do not bleed
