Johanna Basford recommends STAEDTLER products – your ideal tool for her newest colouring book “Lost Ocean”. Find the perfect pen and colouring pencil for your very own #myCreativeEscape.
Johanna Basfords all-time favorite pen from the STAEDTLER product range since her early college days! Ideal for writing, sketching and drawing with its indelible deep black pigment ink.
Johanna Basford's favourite: The particularly soft, colour-intensive lead enables you to use the 24 brilliant colours to achieve anything from pastel to vibrant results – depending on how hard you press on. What's more, they can be blended with one another leaving you free to create an almost unlimited range of different hues. The triangular shape and non-slip surface ensure a perfect grip.
Our most innovative coloured pencil: Its extremely break-resistant lead glides smoothly across paper. In addition to this, its slightly heavier weight and soft surface make it particularly comfortable to hold while colouring. The 24-colour Johanna Basford set ensures you're perfectly equipped for creative moments.
Our coloured pencil classic: Always a good choice. Not only does its easy-to-sharpen lead allow you to colour in even the finest of details, it is also extremely resistant to breakage thanks to its white A·B·S protective coating.
Take an exclusive look into Johanna Basford’s studio where she created her magical colouring books Enchanted Forest, Secret Garden and Lost Ocean. Click on the spots to find out more!
Johanna started her professional career as a textile designer, her chair is a souvenir from that time.
Johanna stores all her originals from her popular books Enchanted Forest, Secret Garden and now Lost Ocean in these magical drawers. There’s a bit of star dust in the air.
Johanna refers to designing and drawing by hand as digital detox, but there is a time when her drawings need to be digitized and turned into amazing works of paper and ink.
What would life be without music? Every morning before Johanna starts her day she turns on the radio, enjoys a hot cup of coffee and listens to some tunes.
Those recently completed artworks just came back from an exhibition and we are lucky to see those exclusive works of art. If you look thoroughly, you’ll find cuckoo clocks in many of Johanna’s books – she just loves them. Little secret: The frames have old oil paintings on the back, which Johanna got from local flea markets.
You may be familiar with Johannas colouring books, but you’d be surprised what other great items you would find in her studio! Who wouldn’t like to have their walls covered in those wallpapers.
What would a design studio be without a visual mood wall? Johanna keeps her favorite designs close to her desk. If you look closely you can find some rare gems…
Johanna designed a couple of porcelain and ceramic items in her career and still keeps many of them around the house and in the kitchen for tea and coffee. For special guests of the house only;-)
