the book of the bird: birds in art is a soft covered book showcasing birds in art, from traditional botanical pieces to renaissance art, to more contemporary paintings and illustrations. they’re nicely mixed up throughout, which i like because it gives a good sense of variety. read this post

as a collage artist myself, it’s always exciting to see books by other collage makers, and especially ones that encourage everyone to get into collage.
collage carnival (a book to colour, cut and paste your way to creative heaven) is a book that does exactly this. the second you look through it you just want to get stuck in, and the variety of activities is very exciting.
this book is absolutely chock full of colour, patterns, collage activities, stickers and much more. even if you don’t want to cut up and use the book (i can’t bring myself to do it just yet) this book is definitely inspiring and will make you want to get out a stack of paper, scissors and some glue and just dig in. read this post

floribunda is blatantly obvious in what it is: a colouring book for flower lovers. i defintely fall into that arena. i’m going to be straight-out honest and say colouring books really aren’t my ‘thing’ but as soon as i saw this i knew i had to give it a go.
on each page there is line art of different floral arrangements, and below some text telling you what is in each image. the drawings (by leila duly) themselves are well produced with delicate line art and have a level of detail satisfying enough that you feel like you’re getting a good colouring workout. read this post

‘bob the artist’ is a book i wish i had as a child.
bob is teased by his friends that he has skinny legs, and he feels like he needs to change himself in order to fit in. he goes on a journey and essentially learns that he doesn’t need to change, he just needs to be confident in being himself. good on you, bob! read this post
