From the internationally bestselling creator of Lost
Ocean
and Secret Garden comes a beautiful new adult coloring
book that takes you on a wondrous expedition through the
jungle

 
Follow ink evangelist Johanna Basford down an
inky trail through the Magical Jungle and discover a forgotten world of
flora and fauna just waiting to be colored in this new coloring book for
adults. Through intricate pen and ink illustrations, color-inners of
all ages are invited to explore an exotic rainforest teeming with
creatures large and small. Encounter speckled tree frogs and dainty
hummingbirds, prowling tigers and playful monkeys. Let your imagination
run wild in the leafy treetop canopy or find yourself drawn to the
delicate world of sensational blossoms and tropical plants below.

Now printed on specially selected ivory paper. This paper has
been specifically created for Johanna Basford’s coloring books. It
has a medium tooth which is perfect for creating beautiful colored
pencil effects or chalk pastel backgrounds but also wonderful for pens,
which will glide effortlessly over its surface.
 
“The
colorists have a queen, and her name is Johanna Basford.”
New York Magazine
 
“Consider trading in
your yoga mat for a set of markers and peruse the gorgeous gardens of
Basford’s imagination.” —The Huffington
Post

I must admit I could be a little biased with this adult coloring book due to the fact that I LOVE animals. It contains a combination of remarkably detailed pictures that would take me a month to color to simpler ones that are just as magnificent. Such as the picture below that took me a week to finish coloring; I know what you are thinking “You’re kidding me. That Hippo picture took you a week!”. I am still learning to color like an adult and not a four-year-old. Therefore, I am learning with a little a little help from the author not only does Johanna Basford have skills in the drawing department, she also has an assortment of tutorial videos on YouTube that has been helpful in improving my coloring technique by shading, making things pop, and so much more. I still need to get a blending pencil.

Johanna is a genius when it comes to drawing. Some examples of the pictures that are in this book is a Gecko made out of leaves and flowers, very cool; owls hidden within the foliage, which is what I see when you could see something entirely different due to the abstractness of the picture; and much more that will blow your mind. As in the other books, as you color you have a mission to find hidden objects, in this case, it is animals. Now I have to let you in on a secret at the end of the book there are pictures that are perforated and only one sided so if you want to frame them or do something else fun with them you have that option! I give it an A+ in adult coloring books.


“Thank you, Penguin publishing, for letting me give an honest review”

Yet another beautiful book to add to my coloring book collection. I love the whimsical illustrations which are best colored with pencil crayons. I did discover watercolor pencil crayons this year and I may try them on this coloring book, just to shake things up. If you have not yet had a chance to jump on the adult coloring book craze, Johanna Basford's books are beautifully done and perfect for all ages.

Desde el año pasado comencé a pintar libros de arteterapia para desestresarme y relajarme. El primer libro que compré fue El jardín secreto de Johanna Basford y me volví fan de esta ilustradora. Hoy les traigo la reseña del último libro que se editó: La jungla mágica. Fue publicado en Argentina por la editorial Urano y traía de regalo una caja de 12 lápices de la marca Faber Castell.

Fue publicado en Argentina por la editorial Urano y traía de regalo una caja de 12 lápices de la marca Faber Castell.

Este libro es uno de los más bellos de Johanna Basford. Está lleno de animales exóticos y de una vegetación exuberante. Elefantes, mariposas, cotorras, tucanes, camaleones, lagartijas y otros animales más se dan cita en este libro para que nos entretengamos pintando. Además de animales, hay paisajes tropicales llenos de flores y plantas (los lápices de color verde son los que más uso). Algunas ilustraciones son sencillas y otras están llenas de detalles, por lo que a veces tengo que dedicarle varios días a algunos dibujos a fin de poder terminarlos.

En las últimas páginas del libro, encontrarán una página de paleta de calibración de color para que puedan hacer experimentos con los lápices de colores antes de utilizarlos. También hay cuatro dibujos al final para pintar, sacar y regalar ya que los dibujos solo ocupan un lado de la hoja.

The newest addition to Johannas books, Magical Jungle, is all about the jungle, as you might guess from the name as well.

The newest addition to Johannas books, Magical Jungle, is all about the jungle, as you might guess from the name as well. The images are all the same style and aesthetics we all have come to know and love. I would actually love it if Johanna would do something urban next, houses and such. Would love to see how she does that in addition to her famous leaves and animals and nature in general.
What I love about this book, there are double page spreads BUT they are printed in such a manner that the binding does not interrupt anything and you don’t have to creep into it to catch some tiny leaf or something. I love that. Seriously. More of this please, everyone!
The paper is the same paper we all know and love, thick and creamy and gorgeous.
Now I must admit, I’m no jungle expert. I don’t even know what most of these things are called to google for reference pictures so I’m a little intimidated by this book. But the images are truly fantastic.
In the end there are a few separate illustrations that are on one side of the paper and perforated so you can easily take them out. My most favorite out of all of these is there, the flamingos.
I am definitely looking forward to coloring something in this book but I figured I’ll thow my two cents in before I get to it because my queue of requests is a mile long by this point, I wouldn’t get to this book for a while otherwise.
Anyway. What I don’t like about this book? Um.. that I don’t know what half of these creatures and flowers are and that’s my own personal problem, obviously. Other than that, nothing. It’s great, much better then Lost Ocean that had quite a few pictures that were way too fiddly.
Plus it has some coloring tips in the beginning and medium test page at the back, love those extras.

As adult coloring books explode onto the market, I’m amazed at the exquisite details some of these books contain.
Illustrator Johanna Basford has one such book with her soon-to-be released MAGICAL JUNGLE: An Inky Expedition and Coloring Book for Adults. The intricate pen and ink illustrations are a work of beauty before color is ever added.
Basford takes colorists on a fascinating adventure through an exotic rainforest. There’s not just flora and fauna waiting to be brought it life with color, but As adult coloring books explode onto the market, I’m amazed at the exquisite details some of these books contain.

Basford takes colorists on a fascinating adventure through an exotic rainforest. There’s not just flora and fauna waiting to be brought it life with color, but also numerous animals of all shapes and sizes. In fact, Basford lists just what types of animals and how many of each are hidden throughout the pages for you to find. In addition, there’s a brief introduction and several tips for making the journey a fun coloring experience.
Colorists can let their imagination run wild as they explore this tropical paradise. The beautiful drawings will have you stopping to admire the overall whimsical effect. This book is a great way to lose yourself for a few hours (or longer) and relax letting your creative side take over.
Basford, dubbed ‘the reigning queen of coloring’ by the New York Times, definitely lives up to her title with her forthcoming release. MAGICAL JUNGLE is a magical experience for all ages.
FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this adult coloring book! The pages are thick and sturdy. The designs to color are fun and engaging. Pictures are back to back which is the only drawback so you can't use anything that will bleed through. I had mine spiral bound so the pages don't come loose. Loving it!

A nice nature colouring book for adults with plants, flowers, birds and animals. For most of this illustrator's books you'll need a large array of the shades of green!

I received this book for free from Goodread's Giveaway.

I only own one other adult coloring book but I feel as if I have done my fair share of research on what makes a coloring book excellent.

There are some neat additional features that I haven't seen in other coloring books
-A hidden animal game
-A test page for colors
There are perforated pages in the back with designs only on one side to share or display. The rest of the pages towards the front are on both sides. The paper is sturdy enough that I received this book for free from Goodread's Giveaway.

As far as the designs go, the pages have a variety of difficult to them. So if you're in the mood for tiny details, there's pages with that, if you need just some big areas to fill in, you can find that too.

All in all, this is a great option especially if you love animals. ...more

I really love this book, I have "Secret Garden" of Johanna Basford's and it is so pretty, but I believe this one has it beat with the pictures, I didn't know which one to start on but I have started on page 6 with a wobbly house.

Johanna's books are very popular and I have all three but I won't be buying anymore of her books. They're beautiful and interesting but either the images are intensely small (and I prefer small, but some are even too small for my taste). The paper is special in this book, almost a light weight oak tag but....I don't like the way it accepts colored pencils. Perhaps gel pens would be better but pencils, not so much. I use Faber-Castell and Caran d'Ache, Prisma and Verithins so my pencils are Johanna's books are very popular and I have all three but I won't be buying anymore of her books.

Magical Jungle: An Inky Expedition and Coloring Book for Adults by Johanna Basford is a wonderful introduction to the world of adult coloring books. It contains pictures that are easy to see and color. this is wonderful for those who have issues with seeing small pictures. The pictures are of gorgeous flowers, foliage, tropical birds, animals, fish, reptiles, and insects. I enjoyed this coloring book.

I received this book thru a Goodreads give away.

Very nice quality book. Heavy weight paper perfect for even markers. My only complaint is that it is printed on both sides, and I would imagine if you used markers on one side then turned over to color the opposite side, the 2nd print might be distorted from the wetness of the markers. Also, if someone wanted to save both prints, you couldn't see both at the same time. The print scale isn't so small that it becomes too busy.

It's super great that the author added a "Color Palette Test Page" right before the detachable pages in the back but WHY NOT MAKE THE COLOR TEST DETACHABLE TOO? Do you know how many goddamn times I've had to flip through this book to find that page?

A LOT.

(I'd recommend Prismacolor pencils, but those fuckers are EXPENSIVE. Use your patience and use a coupon/voucher.)

(Another tip: DO NOT look at the example colorings on the author's website. They will make you feel inadequate AF.)

The newest addition to Johanna's portfolio, and now...it's also in mine! Can't wait to get home and give this book a thorough look.

I also found a clip of Johanna talking about her process for making her books. She showed some sketches and even answered questions from her fans (you should be able to find this on YouTube if you're interested). Super intriguing!

I received this book a few months ago as a good reads giveaway in exchange for a review. There is excellent detail throughout the artwork, and many pages to complete. I'm only giving three stars because since it's a jungle theme it kind of limits the colors to use. This was my first experience with an adult coloring book and I will buy some in the future.
