Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America eRwater creatures andven a stunning double page spread of the Northern Lights over some icebergs which I can t wait to get blending pinks and greens on to really make the scene come to life Some of images are animals on their own others have backgrounds or objects with them some are shown groups and there are also a few double page spreads of collections of natural items including lots of mushrooms pine needles and pine cones palm fronds feathers snowflakes and leaves There are no filler images in this book and ach illustration has absolutely arned its place Claire s style is beautiful and her hyper detailed drawings of nature are just perfect to be coloured with pencils or fineliners A fantastic NEW FEATURE OF THE UK EDITION feature of the UK dition that it contains an image key at the front annoyingly this isn t printed in the same order as the images in the book but it s asy Enough To Find The Picture You Re Wanting To Colour to find the picture you re wanting to colour find out what type of bear or fish it is you re mbarking on colouring this is ideal for those of us who like to colour things realistically as it really aids with searching for the right colour schemesIn terms of mental health this book is wonderful it s absolutely jam packed with nature imagery and so it s really calming and grounding It also offers wonderful scapism as it creates a real sense of place from the first page and truly does transport you to the Nordic countries where it s cold and snowy and bears and furry creatures are verywhere Claire s illustration style is very realistic so it s well suited to colourers who like to stick to realistic colour schemes but ually her images look fabulous in neon colours metallics or rainbows for those with an adventurous streak The line thickness is consistently thin throughout but it s not particularly difficult to stay within the lines as long as you have moderate to good vision and fine motor control The images are highly detailed and intricate on a par with Millie Marotta s and Johanna Basford s books and there are lots of tiny spaces making up ach image whether it be hundreds of leaves or blades of grass or feathers fur or scales there is a huge amount of detail in these illustrations which makes them so beautiful and a joy to colour but this does mean it s not so suitable for people who don t have good vision or fine motor control However while the images are really intricate and detailed most of this detail is drawn into much larger spaces including landscapes and animals so you could very asily colour over these details with pens or pencils so that the linework shows up as texture rather than having to colour Fragments each tiny section separately so there is scope for most ability levels to reallynjoy this book There are also a number of larger spaces in some of the images that will be really well suited to using your pencils for blending and shading to really bring the animals and landscapes to life There aren t any designs for you to finish drawing but there are natural spaces left in a few of the designs where you could add your own creatures foliage scenery and backgrounds this is a happy compromise for those who can and can t draw because there is space to draw if you want it without any written hints You will need a fair amount of concentration to really get the most out of this book as ach image will take a good long while to colour but because of the subject matter you can always colour a few leaves or a flower to get your uick colouring fix on a bad day and tackle a whole image on days when you can cope with colouring for longer I really can t xpress how beautiful this book is or how amazing the production is You ll get absolutely lost in the Nordic Wilderness and if you like The Menagerie you re sure to love this book filled with Claire s beautiful illustrations the German dition made its way straight onto my list of favourites and this new formatting has possibly made me love it ven I would highly recommend.

Nordic Wilderness is a breath of fresh air When I open the pages for the first time I can almost reach into the pages and let myself be taken away by the vast lively nature and intricate beautiful illustrations I was over the moon to see that the Northern Lights were in Claire Scully s colouring book For years I have always wanted to go to Iceland to see them and when I was colouring away fireside I felt one step closer to the tranuillity of it allI was amazed at the panoramic pull out pages and they were by far my favourite uality about Nordic Wilderness It was lovely to see such a uniue spin on the colouring books that are on the market I think that with the autumnal and ven winter nature that surrounds Nordic Wilderness it s perfect for the upcoming and current season I ve spent the past few nights with my pencils by my side in awe of it s true beautyOverall if you re looking for a gorgeous and uniue colouring book that you ll be instagramming pictures of like crazy like I was then Nordic Wilderness is your new best friend I can t recommend it highly nough 5 stars by far Check out about the book below and my pictures This review is taken from my blog where I review adult colouring books from a mental health perspective images purchase links and the original review can be found here Wilderness is illustrated by Claire Scully who co illustrated The Menagerie The Aviary and The Auarium and is published and very kindly sent to me to review by Laurence King Publishing This book was originally published in Germany under the title Nordische Wildnis you can find my review of that dition here I xpected the UK publication to be identical but I couldn t have been wrong despite the content being almost identical almost all aspects of the publication are different including the image order formatting paper colour and book size to name a few therefore I will first review the UK dition here and then go on to compare the UK and German Helpmate editions so that you know which to purchase if you want just one or whether to buy this UK copy if you already have a German copy so buckle up this is a long one folksReviewNordic Wilderness brings usxactly the content you d xpect beautiful images of animals and scenery from the Nordic countries it s gorgeous drawn in Claire s signature intricate style and really lovely The book is just under 25cm suare paperback with flexible grey card covers with images from inside the book and silver foiled text the spine is a dark tealblue colour and the inside covers are also this colour The spine is glue and string bound and fairly strong but also pliable so you can get the book to lie uite flat The pages are mostly printed double sided but the book contains 9 fold out pages ach containing a single sided double page spread which is a fantastic feature as the spine doesn t get in the way of colouring the centre of these pages and they could also be carefully removed to frame if you wish On the backs of the fold out pages are a uniue small motif so there are no truly blank pages in the book The paper is thick cream and lightly textured I ve tested it with pencils and these blend and layer nicely and I coloured my double page spread with water based pens which didn t bleed or shadow at all alcohol markers will bleed through so ither keep these to the fold out bleed through so ither keep these to the fold out or avoid using them in this book The images are a mixture of single and double page spreads and those that are most affected by the spine being down the centre have been printed on the 9 fold
