Bargain!

Thanks OP, just ordered

Appears to be a purchase limit of three copies per account - still, sorts out a few pressies. Even bigger bargain with £1 no-rush delivery digital credit on top. Thank you j9mcl.

Fantastic. Thank you!

Xmas fillers, thanks.

if you order one at a time and have prime there appears to be no limit!

Edit: I've managed to order 7 so far. Will try again later.

edit: Just ordered another and now have 8! I think if you keep trying, there is no limit.

from this review on Amazon, it's made of thick card and don't bleed.

"This book includes 20 of the most popular original images from Secret Garden. The pages are made of thick card which will hold up to just about any colouring medium. I tested my Stabilo Point 88 Fineliners and they didn’t even shadow onto the back and they also didn’t bleed sideways or into the card, they seemed to glide on top instead of saturating the paper like so often happens with thick pages. The card is cream which I know isn’t everyone’s favourite, however, I love it because it makes it feel like a classic book with age and luxury."

great buy thanks!

Wasn't this last years fad? I wonder how many of these type of books have been shoved on a bookshelf never to be looked at again...let alone been coloured in!

...good price though

I've ordered 2 separately for my daughter and niece and got £1 credit for both so effectively 50p each. Boom!!! Heeeeeat!!!

May have ordered another 3... This with a pack of 20 gel pens from asda for £2 makes a really solid kids party gift

Fantastic, cheers OP, ordered 3 - heat added

Ordered 3 together so cancelled that order and ordered 3 individually with a £1 no rush credit on each - thanks jenmumof5

Thank you brilliant deal ordered with the credit for no rush delivery bargain

Curious. I was, and am still, restricted to three, same as chunky_teddy. I have a Student Prime account - I wonder if that explains the difference. Ho hum!

I initially ordered 3 but cancelled to order separately to get 3 x £1 no rush credit. However, after ordering 3 separately, it continue to let me order. Just tried again but it won't let me order anymore. I think the trick is to place your orders quickly one after another before the system spots you're ordering more than 3.

I have a 30day prime trial a/c.

I agree - Johanna Basford sells more of these books than ever worldwide!! I'm totally addicted and have a massive collection of over 400 pencils - prismacolor, polychromos, supracolour etc. Its so relaxing!

Oooooo I want some prismacolours, I'm keeping my eyes open for a deal on one of the big sets....
I already have polychromos; which are my favourites , and a set of Marco Raffine's (which are suprisingly good for the price) plus loads of other types of pens and pencils.
Not sure if you have seen; but there is currently a colouring competition running on Johanna's website, you can find it posted in her blog section, it's also on her Facebook page..... It closes on the 17th Oct, and you can win her new Christmas book and some colouring goodies.
You download the online pic (which is a christmassy polar bear), colour it in and then upload it to her colouring gallery..... Seeing some of her other entries I don't think I stand a chance...lol X) but it's a bit of fun

Prismacolor 150 set is the lowest it's been for a long time on Amazon - go through Flubit and it's even cheaper. To be honest I prefer the Polychromos but there is still a place for Prismacolor. I haven't had a chance to to the colouring competition as I've been so busy recently - got the Christmas book on order. Love watching others colour too - Chris Cheng is a favourite on Youtube - check him out.

Sweet, girlfriend loves these Basford books! Give her some Crayons and she's quiet for hours!

I got that but I kept trying and and it let me order 8 on one account. My first delivery of 6 books is due today and I will post a pic.

Can anyone recommend any good colouring pens / pencils please?

Post a pic? Why would you want to do that? Nobody doubts you - it was easy to order several, with a little ingenuity, but most people didn't want several!

There are many good pencils out there but it comes down to personal preference. My pencils of choice are Faber Castell Polychromos. They have rich pigmentation and nice coverage. Prismacolors are nice and soft but can be a bit waxy
I would suggest getting a few if each kind and see which ones you prefer.
