One of my favorite books to talk about this past season with bookstore buyers has been The Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book, which is just on sale as of last week. The AMAZING publisher Laurence King put it together with Johanna Basford.
As cool as it looks here on screen, you pretty much have to see the finished book to believe it. Great paper textures, foil details on the cover, lots of coloring and seek-and-find activities within.
