This book is the second colouring book offering from Leila Duly who illustrated the hugely successful and utterly stunning, Floribunda, reviewed by me here. This new book is a different format, with somewhat different content and very different production however, rest assured, it’s equally beautiful and an absolute must-have! This book is quite small at 23 x 18cm, it’s hardback with a pale pink linen-style cover in a slightly different shade from Floribunda, with black floral line drawings on the front and back covers and beautiful moss green interior and first and last pages. The spine of the book is stitch-bound and it is glued onto a flexible fabric tape strip which makes it easier to access the gutter in the center of the pages though in some cases this is still tricky and you’ll lose a little of some of the images. The illustrations are printed double-sided and are a mixture of single and double-page spreads.Read more ›
From my point of view, this is a lovely book. It is smaller than the previous book, hard backed and more desk diary size than the previous A4 size book Floribunder. This book however is stunning and a real keepsake. The pictures now include birds in some instances which are true to life, not cartoon type birds and each page is a joy to behold.
This is what I call a "posh" colouring book and I couldn't recommend it more highly
The book is hard-backed with a beautiful pale pink cover and the pages are a beautiful creamy colour and lovely smooth quality. The pages are double-sided so it is not suitable for alcohol markers, but the designs are so delicate I don't think most would want to use them on these illustrations anyway. The book was smaller than I imagined it to be at just 23cm x 18cm so it a lot smaller than Floribunda but it is also smaller than other hardback colouring books like those by Hanna Karlzon, Klara Markova and Maria Trolle which was what I imagined it to be. Some of the pictures are very detailed and a few may prove a little difficult to colour as some of the details are very small, luckily for the majority the size means that the illustrations are less daunting to colour.
The inside covers of the book are a beautiful green paper and there is also a ribbon bookmark. The format of the book is that it is broken down by month and the illustrations for each show what plants and flowers are in bloom in that particular month. Drawings of individual flowers are named and it is very reminiscent of "A Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" by Edith Holden on these pages in particular. There is also the occasional rabbit, bird or butterfly amongst the flowers.
It is a beautiful book and will probably appeal most as a colouring book to more experienced colourists; however it is such a beautiful book this would be a lovely book just to own and look through as a coffee table book.Read more ›
