For a way to relax and immerse yourself into aquatic life in a unique way, The Aquarium: Marine Creatures to Colour, published recently by LOM ART priced £9.99, is the third instalment of adult colouring books illustrated by Claire Scully and Richard Merritt, following on from The Menagerie and The Aviary.
Filled with majestic marine creatures to colour in, the pages include a pearlescent parrotfish and a spotted stingray. The fully foiled cover adds a touch of elegance and a lovely sea-like shimmer.
