Luxury launches website VeryFirstTo.com announces the launch of the world's most luxurious colouring book: The Bespoke Colouring Book. The illustrations will convey the most meaningful personalties, locations and occasions in your life.

 

Recently, colouring books for adults have featured at the top of bestsellers lists, even eclipsing the cookery book sector, and have been created by the likes of Vogue and Karl Lagerfeld. To date however, there has been no luxury bespoke offering.

The truly magnificent book will contain ten bespoke illustrations by famed illustrator Ian Beck, hand bound in fine leather by Masters Bookbinding, complete with 24 carat gold leaf lettering on the cover. Commissioned fees begin at £23,900/$30,875./ €27,260.

The hand rendered illustrations and title page are presented on beautiful handmade paper by Ian Beck whom will meet with the buyer to learn about the most important people, moments and places in the life of the book's recipient. The style of illustration will also be agreed.

 




Beck says "I am really delighted to be part of this project, I anticipate the type of subjects people would like to have illustrated include: a portrait of themselves; pets; home; favourite holiday resort; family at their regular restaurant; cottage in the country etc. This is an amazing keepsake and heirloom in the making for the family."

Ian Beck, whose work is internationally recognised and respected, is best known for the iconic Elton John Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album cover. His work for other musicians including James Taylor; for famous magazines such as Cosmopolitan; and for over 80 books has cemented him as one of the world's most accomplished illustrators. He has won awards for a number of his books and he has sold in excess of one million books worldwide.

It is widely reported that the act of colouring-in forces the mind to be still and focus on the present moment. The repetitive and simple task enables the mind to block intrusive negative thoughts whilst creating a sense of calm – a perfect part of one's mindfulness regime.

Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, Superbrands and Cool BrandLeaders says: "Colouring books are a wonderful antidote to today's digital-driven world and represent a trend that is here to stay. We are offering the world's most luxurious incarnation of this. The perfect way to relax whilst colouring one's fondest memories captured by an exceptional illustrator."
