Fallen in love with adult colouring books? Johanna Basford has two more coming out this year!

The queen of adult colouring, Johanna Basford, is coming back with two news colouring books with Virgin Books, a division of Penguin Random House.


The two new books, ‘Magical Jungle’, starring “an exotic rainforest teeming with creatures large and small”, including “speckled tree frogs and dainty hummingbirds, prowling tigers and curious monkeys” and ‘Johanna’s Christmas’ featuring “flurries of delicate snowflakes, to deliciously decorated gingerbread houses and reindeer-led sleighs” will be published in August 25th and October 27th, respectively.


She said: “I’m so excited to be working on two new books this year with Penguin Random House. It’s the biggest honour to have my inky imagined worlds brought to life by colourists around the globe, a chance to collaborate with literally millions of people! I create books so they can make masterpieces.”

Basford previous adult colouring releases ‘Secret Garden’, ‘Enchanted Forest’ and ‘Lost Ocean’ have stormed the charts and the book world and we reckon these will too!
