Delicate tangles of holly and ivy, bauble-laden Christmas trees, and mountains of exquisitely wrapped gifts are all waiting to be brought to life in this new coloring book from the internationally bestselling creator of Lost Ocean. From flurries of delicate snowflakes to deliciously decorated gingerbread houses and reindeer-led sleighs, Johanna's Christmas is a celebration of this wonderful holiday season that invites you to pick up your pens and pencils to color, complete, or embellish each of the festive artworks. Hidden in this book are a flock of elusive little robins--can you spot them all? Now printed on specially selected ivory paper. This paper has been specifically created for Johanna Basford's coloring books. It has a medium tooth which is perfect for creating beautiful colored pencil effects or chalk pastel backgrounds but also wonderful for pens, which will glide effortlessly over its surface.

Been working like mad to finish this coloring picture for a friend's wedding present & the wedding is only a couple days away! I'm framing two pictures and then filling a recipe book with some favorites from out family. Needless to say, the books I'm currently surrounded by are of the coloring and cooking persuasion 🎨 I couldn't find this coloring book in the Litsy database, so I tagged a book by my favorite colorist, Johanna Basford, instead 😊

DivineDiana Did you finish? 2y
wordslinger42 @DivineDiana I did, the day before the wedding! 😅 But it got framed, wrapped & gifted, so it worked out, even though I finished it at the last minute! 2y
DivineDiana @wordslinger42 👏🏻👰🤵 2y

I can't read and watch soccer at the same time, but I can color. Coloring #johannaschristmas while cheering on Manchester City, and laughing that the first NYT best seller I've bought is a coloring book.

Cinfhen Looks good😍 3y

Coloring while watching the Australian series The Librarians on Hulu. And I have great news: We have power! 🎉🎉🎉 (and hot water 🚿) 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

mcipher Yay!!!! Power is awesome. 💡 3y
Donna_sBookMinute Wow. That was a long time. When we lose power due to a storm, it's like an adventure at first -- seeing how creative we can be for essentials. Then it gets old. Glad yours is back on. 3y
vivastory Good! Enjoy Hulu and light to color by. 💡 💡 3y

I was coloring and #Septimus was napping when electrician came. Good news: appliances should be fine. Bad news: he couldn't do anything. We have to wait until the government's power company comes to replace the burnt-out line. 😱😱😱

KarenUK Oh no! That's awful... 😱 3y
LeahBergen Oh, no. 👎🏻 3y
Notafraidofwords Ugh. I'm sorry. 3y
