Gulliver’s New Travels is a modern take on the classic Gulliver’s Travels in the form of a colouring book. Illustrator James Gulliver Hancock brings together his obsessions with re-imagining the world and travelling with his attention to scale and detail. The result is a creative colouring book inspired by Swift’s 18th-century classic, featuring different worlds and playing with scale as in the lands of teeny Lilliput and giant Brobdingnag. There is a whole imaginary world to colour in. Taking in places from around the world, from all landscapes, and even future worlds and those in galaxies far away, the illustrations are playful and fanciful but always wonderful to look at.

So grab your pencils, put the kettle on and enjoy some rainy day colouring.
