Dagdrömmar by Hanna Karlzon: Colouring Book Review and Artist Interview

Dagdrömmar is an absolutely stunning colouring book from the pen of Swedish artist Hanna Karlzon. Currently published only in Scandinavia, let's hope it finds a way onto our shores soon.

Dagdrömmar by Hanna Karlzon cover
I've been spending a lot of time on Facebook lately, getting inspired by the adult colouring community and discovering colouring artists such as Hanna Karlzon, who has created the beautiful Dagdrömmar (Daydreaming), a gorgeous volume chock full of dreamy imagery inspired by nature. Hanna talks to us about a love of Art Nouveau and Vikings, memories of childhood, and longings for summer. I can't wait for Hanna's next offering, Sommarnatt (Summernight), due out early next year.

I believe Dagdrömmar means Daydreaming - what do you daydream about and how did this influence the images that appear in this book?
