Rosie Flo’s colouring books






Funnily enough, in my favourite little studio next door – the one I see out the window of my little room, were once produced the Rosie Flo colouring books (which are more than just colouring in books because you draw faces, arms and legs and backgrounds too).

I found this out the other day when helping a neighbour with a book he’s publishing – and the first thing I saw upon arriving was a display stand of lovely colourful Rosie Flo books. It would transpire you see, said neighbour is involved in the running of the Rosie Flo publishing empire. Yay for that.

So of course I left with an armful of books, some of which are now in little packages ready for their journeys around the world, but I’ve saved one or two for the blog, so if you’d like one please just leave a comment and I’ll draw a winner or two in about a week.

There’s an AMAZING japanese book too which you can buy easily enough from Amazon – it’s marvellous – it includes illustrations done by famous Japanese artists and drawing and colouring in space for you too.

More Rosie Flo goodness at Amazon.

    I’m a big Rosie Flo (ond Johnny Joe) fan. Notice I say ‘I’ and not ‘my boys’ because there are some things that my mama control-freakery just won’t let me allow them carte blanche to do.

    We have one of these in our house, and it is the most superb thing!

    Miss Z (4) has drawn marvellous spindly weird-headed creatures, and I hoped to put it away for posterity – but she tore some pages out as ‘gifts’ for visitors.

    I had no idea there were so many available! Must go hunting….

    With four boys, I *NEED* those books, so that I can pretend I have a little girl to draw little dollies with…

    Oh I just adore the Rosie Flo coloring books! I purchased one at the Tate Modern’s Children’s bookshop several years ago and just adore it… so lovely!

    They look beautiful (would it be OK to get one and then keep it for myself? :))

  29. Rach avatar

    Wonderful. Will be looking for those.

    And I have been inspired by your blurb books. Now I seem to be spending even more time on the computer but, most of it is now spent smiling and crying and smiling at the many, many babies photos of our Minnie.

    We found something made here in Melbourne, a similar style called, Rosie Apple … but we’d still love one of these, they seem like perhaps the inspiration for the latter.

  41. colourspace avatar

    You should keep a stash of those for you – they make the perfect gifts for little girls birthdays 🙂 we love them too

  42. Kelly avatar

    Beautiful and clever! I love that and the idea to let a child work a little his imagination.

  44. kimberly avatar

    Johnny Joe joins us every weekend at our favorite cafe. The owners look forward to seeing which page will come to life next. Rosie Flo! My heart melts 🙂

  45. Kim avatar

    oooh! I’ve never seen these before — very cool to be able to draw in the body parts and backgrounds. neat, backwards, creative process in a way — we’d love to give them a try!

    thanks for the fun giveaway — 😉

    the cutest!
    You introduce me in a magic world..

  47. Kate avatar

    These are fantastic. I am so glad to know about them. So much better than the traditional coloring books. Reminds me a little of the Taro Gomi coloring books like … Doodles.

  48. Calypso avatar

    My little niece would love these. She (and her family) have just returned to the UK after five weeks here with me in NZ. *sob*

    How wonderful. I’d never seen them before this.
