Johanna Basford’s amazing 2013 bestseller Secret Garden fueled the adult coloring craze, selling an unprecedented number of copies. It was born out of the self-described “ink evangelist’s” passion for the hand-drawn line and its inherent sense of energy, which is impossible to duplicate via computer-generated graphics. Her initial bestseller was quickly followed by two more as her fan base and the coloring phenomenon grew. Along the way she’s lent her art to such corporate clients as Starbucks, Absolut Vodka, and Chipotle. No matter where it’s encountered, her art evokes fancy in the viewer, inviting closer inspection of its hidden intricacies.
