Everything has their own patron saint, and it is without a doubt that the patron saint of modern adult colouring books is Johanna Basford, who broke into the publishing scene with her beautifully illustrated The Secret Garden which took the world storm. After the wildly successful release of her 3 adult colouring books, Johanna Basford is back with her latest colouring book which offers a refreshing twist.
More than just a colouring book, Ivy and the Inky Butterfly is a fairy tale story book about a young girl’s quest to pursue a magical butterfly through an enchanted door. During her pursuit through the magical land of Enchantia, Ivy encounters many whimsical characters and wondrous things along the way. Accompanying the story is Johanna’s gorgeous, detailed illustrations, bringing depth and wonder to an already enchanting fable.
More than just a colouring book, more than just a story book, Johanna Basford’s Ivy and the Inky Butterfly sets a new bar for a hobby that many has turn to for relaxation, mindfulness and peace.
