written & illustrated by Liebet Jooste
Liebetland is a wacky world where anything that might be imagined is true. It is a place where strange creatures of all sizes and shapes live amongst wonderful plants and things in colourful landscapes. A world of diversity, adventure, and of making impossible things possible. Unlike most colouring books, this one’s illustrations run onto one another (forming a 6-metre long illustration if you connected all the pages). Paperback / 200 x 200 / 32pp / Imaginary House

Free Drawing

written & illustrated by Andrés Sandoval
On a rainy night or a foggy afternoon, who has never seen themselves with a handful of pencils and their imagination on the loose?  More than a coloring book, FREE DRAWING is an invitation to dive into the universe of colours and strokes, filling spaces and white with a lot of imagination. From the botanical garden to the world of shadows, the reader follows a boy’s wanderings  and is invited to join, whether with crayons, wax chalk, watercolor, or just as an observer – this creative journey.
