Discover a delightful underwater world of exotic fish, seahorses, coral reefs and much more to color and embellish. A new book by the queen of adult coloring books that is fun for all ages. — Sarah Knight

Description


From the creator of the worldwide bestsellers Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest, a beautiful new adult coloring book that takes you on a magical journey beneath the waves

With this coloring book for adults, Johanna Basford invites color-inners of all ages to discover an enchanting underwater world hidden in the depths of the sea. Through intricate pen and ink illustrations to complete, color, and embellish, readers will meet shoals of exotic fish, curious octopuses, and delicately penned seahorses. Visit coral reefs and barnacle-studded shipwrecks, discover intricate shells and pirate treasure. Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest fans and newcomers alike will welcome this creative journey into an inky new world.

For Lost Ocean, Johanna picked a crisp ivory paper that accentuates and complements your chosen color palette. The smooth, untextured pages allow for beautiful blending or gradient techniques with colored pencils or are perfect for pens, allowing the nib to glide evenly over the surface without feathering.
