Sagolikt (Fabulous) is an adorable book of imaginative illustrations featuring adorable stuffed animals and toys that have magically come to life between the pages. This book is heavily influenced by whimsical, storybook art and is another one of those coveted books that combines children's themed drawings with adult complexity- my favourite!
There are some Alice in Wonderland references in the book but it is not solely themed on that, it's more a enchanting, fairytale-style book in general. The illustrations have a very Nordic feel and are reminiscent of other books by foreign artists, such as Hidden Nature, Dagdrommar and Flow.
Have a look through this charming book in the slideshow here:
The linework is a consistent thickness throughout and has quite large colourign spaces- there are just lots of them! I love how it enables us adults to colour playful, childlike artwork and still have enough intricacy to hold our attention.
Again, I am faced with yet another favourite (I seem to find a new one every week) but this truly is an unmissable book that most colourists will absolutely love. At the moment it is only available directly from Sweden at Penstore.com, but you can enter my giveaway below and try to win yourself a copy!
