As many readers may know, I have a coloring crush on Korean artist and illustrator Daria Song.
I adore her books The Time Garden, The Time Chamber and The Present/The Night Voyage. I was super excited to see that Daria is working on a new coloring book. She has not named a title as yet, but we have an appearance of the little girl and of course an intricate scene. This drawing she is calling Haunted Mansion which makes me wonder …if Daria is inking up a Halloween coloring book. Time will tell!
Here’s a peek of the sketch that Daria was working on from her Instagram feed.

The Mysterious Mansion seems to be the most intricate coloring book that Daria has so far produced. The art work that she has been showing on social media for the last few months shows extremely detailed designs. The little girl continues to make her appearance in this book. In this book there will be two different cover designs – one I understand is a limited edition and may come with a bonus gold spoon for Korean residents.
In addition to the gorgeous pages to color, I believe that there are some extremely intricate and delicate paper dolls to cut out and play with! Paper dolls always make me happy and I can’t wait to see them in the flesh!

International colorists can pre-order The Mysterious Mansion here. The Mysterious Mansion is due for release in December 2017 in Korea. As far as I understand it, this will not be the limited edition cover and the bonus spoon, as that is only available for a short run in Korea.
You can also purchase the Korean edition of the Mysterious Mansion here
If you are happy to wait, the good news is that an English publisher has acquired the rights to print the book. As yet, there is no publication date set. I will update the post when more information is to hand.
Happy coloring x
