Sally Spratt, like most of us, covets the beautiful things in life. But, for most of us, a lot of these things are out of reach. Are you a material girl? If so, this book is like a catalogue of all the most opulent and extravagant items you would love to be surrounded by: expensive perfumes, designer clothes, scrumptious edible delicacies, precious jewellery, high-end make up, chilled champagne, bouquets of luxury flowers and jet sets to the most amazing corners of the world. All of these things & more are waiting for colour in The Lust List, Sally's first colouring book based upon daily illustrations she posts to Instagram of objects she wishes she owns. Her motto? "If I can't have them, I'll draw them."
The book has a smooth matte cover with glossy embellishments, and the paper is crisp white with a good tooth for coloured pencils. The illustrations are printed on one side (only the title of the drawing is printed on the reverse) so you can colour with any materials without fear of bleed through. The illustrations themselves have a sketchy, imperfect quality and don't look as though they have been cleaned up digitally, in fact they look as if they have been drawn straight onto the page!
The Lust List has 96 pages and is currently priced at £7.99 on Amazon. Here is my finished page, coloured with Sakura Koi pens in a loose painterly style.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
