Hanna Karlzon has done it again!
Hanna Karlzon lives in Umeå, Sweden where she enjoys the nature and wildlife that surrounds her as you can see from her coloring book subject matter. Each of her books is printed as a real hardbacked book with glorious paper to color on. Each page is two-sided so do take care with your coloring mediums but the paper can handle quite a bit of layering and even careful watercolor application.
This book’s original title in Sweden is Skogsriket. In Hanna Karlzon’s newest coloring book, you are invited to a magical kingdom in a forest full of elaborate flowers and trees and whimsical animals and their abodes.
2020 was rough on us all but it gave Hanna time to create another gorgeous hand-drawn coloring book.
Hanna Karlzon’s coloring book release in 2019 is of course another gorgeous book featuring her fantasmical creatures this time.
Spirit Animals Coloring Book: Published in Sweden as “Själsfränder” and in Spain as “Soul Mates”
Hanna’s book from 2018 is one of the favorite featured items in all of her books but this one is focused on them, lovely jewels!
Jewelry Box Coloring Book: Published in Sweden as Smyckeskrinet
This gorgeous book will be in her signature size and printing style, a hardbound “keep forever” type of coloring book we just don’t find in the US. Hanna shares that the inspiration for Jewelry Box aka Smyckeskrinet is an old Edwardian house and its garden. Hanna’s one of a kind style put to subjects of people, animals, flowers, clocks, and vases reminiscent of the turn of the century. We can’t wait to get our hands on it, as always, we might have to snag the Swedish version as well. This gorgeous Swedish Coloring Book launches August 21, 2018 in the US.
Unfortunately, the artist book of Faces only called “Tillsammans” was only available for a short time at Printworks in Sweden and it is out of print. Count yourself lucky if you managed to snag a copy.
It looks as though my Swedish Queen of Coloring is releasing a new book for 2017 called “Seasons” (Original Swedish title “Tidevarv”) You can order now!

Every time I see something on Insta or Facebook that makes me gasp it’s so fabulous it’s always by Hanna Karlzon. Her style is so unique there is something old world yet modern about her illustrations.
Hanna Karlzon is an Umeå, Sweden-based illustrator and creator of the best-selling coloring books, Dagdrömmar and Sommarnatt, previously published in Sweden. She creates elaborately detailed images using India ink to detail pictures from her own imagination and loves to draw flowers, forests, houses, and animals. She draws her inspiration from the natural world that surrounds her studio in northern Sweden and adds in some art nouveau, punk rock, and often a hint of ‘70s design to the mix. ~ Amazon
