Magical Jungle

by Johanna Basford

Follow ink evangelist Johanna Basford down an inky trail through Magical Jungle and discover a forgotten world of flora and fauna just waiting to be coloured in. Through intricate pen and ink illustrations, colour-inners of all ages are invited to explore an exotic rainforest teeming with creatures large and small. Encounter speckled tree frogs and dainty hummingbirds, prowling tigers and playful monkeys. Let your imagination run wild in the leafy treetop canopy or find yourself drawn to the delicate world of sensational blossoms and tropical plants below. There are ancient relics to be found along the way, each one leading toward the mystical treasure hidden at the heart of the magical jungle. Only the bravest, most inquisitive colourers will discover what lies hidden at the end of this inky quest.

For Magical Jungle Johanna has picked a crisp ivory paper that accentuates and compliments your chosen colour palette. The smooth, untextured pages allows for beautiful blending or gradient techniques with coloured pencils, or are perfect for pens, allowing the nib to glide evenly over the surface without feathering.

About Johanna Basford

Johanna Basford is an illustrator and ink evangelist who prefers pens and pencils to pixels. She creates intricate, hand drawn illustrations predominately, although not exclusively, in black and white. Much of her work has roots in the flora and fauna that surrounded her growing up on a fish farm in rural Scotland. She graduated in 2005 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee with a degree in Printed Textiles and a portfolio stuffed with monochrome silk screen prints and drawings. Following that, she set up a little studio and began on her mission to vanquish the vector and champion the (wobbly) hand drawn line.
