I prefer the previous books

I found the illustrations less intricate and appealing in this book to the previous ones, but it's still lovely quality and very well illustrated. I think plenty of people would absolutely love it....Read complete review

      Comments about Lost Ocean:

      While I love Johanna Basford's work, many of the images in this book require fine liners or pens to colour the entire image. For some the cost could be prohibitive, for others the visual demands will be too great - a point worth considering if buying for a friend. Despite that there are beautiful line drawings to colour and enjoy.

              Johanna Bamford's colouring books are still my favourite and this one doesn't disappoint. For any one who loves colour and is in need of an relaxing hobby. At first glance I thought parts of the illustrations almost too small to colour but there is the challenge. I must sharpen my pencils!
