I have been camping out in my work cave as of late. But I have a good reason. I am thrilled to announce my forthcoming book Edible Paradise from Rizzoli New York‘s Universe imprint! It’s a fully ripened coloring book of seasonal fruits and vegetables ready to be attacked with sharpened colored pencils. Edible Paradise will delight any curious foodie, green-thumbed enthusiast, broccoli-phobic child or anyone in need of unplugging and reconnecting with the edible plant world.
Nevertheless, mark your calendar for the release, February 9th, 2016. Although it is always best to purchase Edible Paradise from a local bookstore, preorder a copy here on Amazon today.
In the meantime, savor all the summer fruit and veg you can eat!
I begrudgingly checked my email after hitting the snooze button 8 times on a recent Monday morning. And it was a commission from The High Priestess of Style with a capital S, Vogue.com. Can you please take a look to confirm this is real?
I am very pleased to announce the release of my new coloring book Recettes du jardin à cuisiner et à colorier, Editions Mango. With 96 pages of seasonal, veggie-centric recipes by Franco-Japonese author Laure Kié. I took care of the illustrations, but the color is up to you!
Adult coloring books have had quite the renaissance in France the past few years, becoming one of the bestselling genres. I brushed off the whole thing until I sat down with Recettes du jardin and my colored pencils. “I know how to draw. Why should I color?” said the arrogant illustrator. Sure enough, I spent the whole weekend storming through page after page. But I get it now! Coloring is a tactile break from gadgets. Each page is a rewarding exercise in concentration. It’s like creative camomile tea, a much-needed digital withdrawal before bedtime.
Note: the recipes are in French, but coloring has no language.
Order a copy here. Or preferably at the local bookstore.
