Fairies The Colouring Book of Secrets

Pass through the magical doorway and escape into the Fairy Realm!

Embark upon an adventure into the depths of the enchanting Fairy world. The stunning illustrations from Fairies: The Book of Secrets have been beautifully recreated in pen and ink and now lay dormant, waiting for you to bring them to life. Bring about a state of peace and mindfulness as you free your imagination to create colourful Fairy masterpieces whilst reconnecting with the Fey Folk.

It is time to believe again.

About The Book

My goal is to raise enough money on Kickstarter to produce a first edition print run of Fairies The Colouring Book of Secrets. 

The book itself will be:

  • 48 pages 
  • 26cm wide and 22.5cm high 
  • Printed on a luxury heavyweight 190gsm (Heavier than most colouring books) matt paper stock with a nice texture making it perfect for colouring with your choice of medium, whether that be colouring pencil, paint or pen. 
  • It will also have a 300gsm card cover with gold embossed foiling

Take a Peek Inside

Below are some pages to show you how the inside of the book will look.

Who Am I?

My name is Russell Ince and I am an author and illustrator. Originally I attended film school at Universal Studios in Hollywood, where I studied screenwriting under the likes of Shrek and Pirates of the Caribbean writer Terry Rossio and producer, writer and director John Favreau of Iron Man and Elf fame.

After Film School I took up a career as a professional graphic designer. In December 2008, I married my wife Claire and the arrival of our daughter Millie in 2012, is what inspired me to pursue my dream of becoming a full time writer and illustrator.

Risks and challenges

The challenge for me is, that whilst I am an established author and illustrator, I have never before produced a colouring book. Drawing without colour, shading and detail has been a new challenge, but one which I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Kickstarter now affords me the opportunity to see whether the lovely people out there such as yourself like what I have done and I am excited to see what the feedback is.
