UNIQUE AND DISTINCTIVE:Nature is a popular subject for colourers, and this is immediately distinctive for Steve's photo-based approach. This isn't the thousandth indistinguishable book of nature patterns of made-up doodly bits. This is a real detailed fun-to-colour celebration of our actual, beautiful world.
BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Fantastic Cities was a breakout bestseller in the overcrowded world of colouring books and established our place in that arena. Follow-ups have been well-received, especially as we venture from architecture to Collections and now the natural world, but with Steve's unique style. His distinctiveness in the field is supported by his usually being one of the featured authors in phenomenology articles about colouring books.
HIGH QUALITY FORMAT: Thick white stock (by the way praised by Entertainment Weekly by the way as 'high quality.') No bleed through anything (felt pens, water colour, pencils) except permanent markets, which would bleed through anything and only a crazy person would use. Large format, art never crosses gutter, center margins for ease of colouring.
GLOBE-SPANNING: Each illo gets a caption identifying what it is and where it is. We've made efforts to cover lots of territory and make it a global celebration. (There will also be the series-defining selection on mandala images created from the images.)
