Coloring in a New World
James Gulliver Hancock - All books by this author
Take a walk on the wild side with this coloring book that is unlike anything youíve ever encountered before. Using the original Gulliverís Travels as an inspirational jumping off point, acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has woven in his own personal experiences and travel stories among the incredible coloring scenes in this book. This modern take on the 18th-century Gulliverís Travels plays with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag, while also referencing places from around our world, across many different landscapes, and even in future worlds and distant galaxies. The result is a coloring book that is playful, fanciful, and wonderful to behold. Hancock invites colorists to explore every facet of this book and make it their own with pens, pencils, paints, and more. Similar to taking a fantastic journey across new countries and cultures, Hancock encourages you to wander among the drawings, inviting you to discover details you might not have noticed at first, such as a diver swimming through flowers or a tiny climber scaling a cactus. From imaginary maps to giant birds, urban jungles to a flotilla of boats on the sea, itís perfect for anyone with a passion for travel and color.
From the Reviews:
ďIf you love yourself some Gulliver's Travels and love coloring as well, then I would pick this up! I so recommend this book for those of you who love quirky, neat looking images that are based on real items but are not anywhere near realistic. And while this book doesn't tell any kind of story itís a fun project to follow along on Gulliverís new travels. Color On!Ē
