Just Add Color: Flora and Fauna

by Lisa Congdon

published by Rockport ( £7.99)

Just Add Color: Flora and Fauna comprises of 30 illustrations to colour by Lisa Congdon. The naive,slightly Scandanavian illustrations are cute,fun, cheerful and not too detailed making it ideal for a beginner, child, someone who struggles with more detailed designs because of eyesight or dexterity problems, or just someone who want something quick and simple to colour quickly and relax with for a short time. It is not aimed at more advanced colourists who will likely find the designs too simplistic.

There  are deer, rabbits, birds, fox,fish, bears, butterflies and mice with simple woodland scenes and patterns.It has single-sided prints on good quality thick white paper which is handily perforated for easy removal of your artwork. During the flipthrough I kept thinking that I had two-pages stuck together when I hadn’t. It also includes 4 full-colour images by Lisa.

As it is single-sided this is a good one to use for markers – the designs themselves would look great coloured in the bold colours of felt tip pens, yet the paper is toothy enough to take pencil well too.

It’s a lovely, good quality book with simple designs and I recommend it
