Johanna Basford’s colouring book for adults reaches Number 2 in Amazon Bestseller charts

Johanna Basford’s latest colouring book for adults, Enchanted Forest, is at Number 2 in the UK Amazon Bestseller charts and Number 1 in the US. Stock of the book which is Waterstone’s Book of the month in March has sold out as copies fly off the shelves following the boom in the adult colouring in trend.

Enchanted Forest, which was published this month, invites readers to colour in over 60 of Johanna’s stunning illustrations of woodland animals and forest landscapes. The book’s forest theme is inspired by her childhood memories of the Scottish Isle of Arran.

Johanna Basford commented: I’m thrilled to think that in this busy, digital world people are shunning their smartphones and reaching for pens and pencils to enjoy a spot of colouring in!

The success of Enchanted Forest comes a couple of years after the illustrator’s debut colouring book, Secret Garden, sold over 1 million copies in 14 different languages and out sold France’s bestselling cookery books.
