Yeap, after having seen three young folks – obviously just having finished their day at work – purposefully walking into a stationary and book shop here in Bangkok and collecting the remainder of Joanna Basfords’ coloring books “Secret Garden” and “Enchanted Forest” I decided it is about time to have our take on these events!

A long time favorite of mine and still remains number one of all the coloring books out there is Johanna Basfords coloring book “Secret Garden”.

ENJOY this collection of free coloring pages!!! 🙂
This round up wouldn’t be right though if I were not to at least mention the fact that there are amazing Coloring Books & Pages out there that are worth the penny.
COLORING BOOKS & PAGES WORTH THE PENNY
Obviously, like everyone else I am more than happy to see all these beautiful coloring pages out there that are free to download. A very good introduction into the world of coloring. If one gets “hooked” on coloring though, one might want to explore further and invest into some coloring books and/or pages. There are some most amazing books out there and worth every dime paid for it!
So please be kind and lets not create an expectation that all these coloring pages should be free to obtain. After all behind each coloring page stands an artist that should see some sort of reward, too. We all have to eat and feed our families! 😉
So which coloring books out there are your favorites?
Mine?! Most definetely “Secret Garden”!
I already mentioned Johanna Basford‘s beautiful work. I am the biggest fan of her art. I was most excited to see her books coming into the stores here in Bangkok now!
Her books are available everywhere… in stores, online! But do check out her portfolio and get more personal! Find it here!
