Secret Garden

Synopsis

Tumble down the rabbit hole and find yourself in an inky black-and-white wonderland. This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life through coloring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. And there are also bits of the garden that still need to be completed by you.

About the author

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.
