About this work


"ROOTS colouring zines are all about mindfulness, creativity, getting back to nature and raising money for vital causes whilst we are at it. Part sketch-book / part zine, this limited edition colouring book is inspired by magnificent plants found across Africa, from the ancient baobab to the flamboyant flame lily. Hand-drawn illustrations interspersed with facts and folklore invite you to take time out of your busy day to simply colour and play with crayons, pencils and paints, bringing African flora to life in whatever way you wish - there are no wrong colours! Each A5 zine is printed, assembled and signed by Bryony in the studio. There is also this Spotify playlist ROOTS: Colour with Bryony&Bloom to inspire as you colour."--From zinester's website.
