Oh this is a gorgeous week for new releases! I was hard pressed to choose only three…. But I’m sticking to my guns and this is what our picks are for the last full week of October.
First of all I was tempted by the David Bowie Retrospective, however on closer inspection it seems a little disappointing. It feels like a bit of a play on the whole creepiness of his music and art right now when it’s so close to Halloween. So by all means if you’re a fan and you just have to have every Bowie piece of paraphernalia you can get your hands on, go ahead… otherwise, there are some much more exciting books newly available this week (in my opinion).
The one who started it all Johanna Basford is releasing her BEAUTIFUL Christmas book in October. Johanna’s Christmas: A Festive Coloring Book for Adults is a total must have for Basford fans, and will give you enough time to color and display her work for the festive season.
This beautiful offering My Wondrous World: Enchanted Winter Adult Coloring Book is a lovely look at the cold, snow covered fields, sweet wintery mandalas and patterns and enchanting forest creatures. It has also been recommended to me by one of our readers, the lovely Stephanie V who has all four of this artist’s books. It has a pseudo Christmassy feel to it, but that’s fine with me.. I’m on the countdown to the holidays!
And this one is just lovely. There’s nothing particularly exciting or innovative, it’s just beautiful images that you can color easily for a pretty special outcome. Check out National Geographic Magnificent Animals: An Adult Coloring Book
