Best Selling Illustrator Millie Marotta to Release New Woodland Colouring Book
By Emily Peagram 06 Jan 2020
The New Year looks set to be an exciting one for Millie Marotta – Pavilion Books has announced that the illustrator will release four miniature versions of her best-selling books in March 2020, followed by a brand new woodland themed colouring book in September.
Measuring 150 x 150 mm, the pocket-size colouring books will each feature over 80 illustrations and are perfect for colouring on the move. The titles coming out in miniature format are: Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom, Millie Marotta’s Tropical Wonderland, Millie Marotta’s Curious Creatures and Millie Marotta’s Beautiful Birds and Treetop Treasures (Batsford, £4.99 each).
The new book, Millie Marotta’s Woodland Wild, will feature over 90 illustrations of woodland wildlife from around the globe. Colourists are invited to add their own palette to a huge range of species who make the woods their home, from fireflies to fallow deer, wild boar to dainty ladybird, and magnolia trees to forest wolves. It will be published in paperback by Batsford, an imprint of Pavilion Books, on 17 September 2020. RRP £9.99.
Publishing Director of Batsford Tina Persaud said: “It’s as much a pleasure planning this book with Millie as it was her first colouring book, six years ago. The quality of her illustration is why her books keep selling. Her fans won’t be disappointed.”
Millie Marotta commented: “I’m thrilled to be exploring the world’s incredible woodlands – home to a hugely rich and diverse variety of flora and fauna – for my new colouring book, which I can’t wait to share with the worldwide colouring community. I hope fans will be delighted by the illustrations and may even discover a species they didn’t before know about as they bring each page alive with colour, in a celebration of our precious natural world.”
