Coloring the Great Black & White Whale
An Adult Coloring Book Takes to the Seas
Adult coloring books became the subject of much discussion this summer when Johanna Basford’s books took the top two spots on Amazon, displacing George R.R. Martin and Harper Lee alike. Titled Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest, they feature ink designs both elegant and elaborate for embellishers of all ages. Basford’s third book, Lost Ocean, will be published later this month by Penguin Books; until then, we offer a whale-shaped excerpt, for your coloring pleasure.
