The Colourist is a unique Bookazine dedicated to Annie Sloan's passion for colour. Annie has written 26 books in her distinguished career, but The Colourist is her first venture into the world of magazines.

The Colourist Bookazine by Annie Sloan front cover

"To launch a magazine full of colour-filled inspiration has always been a dream of mine!"

-Annie Sloan

The Colourist is a bi-annual Bookazine (bigger than a magazine, smaller than a book) publication, first launched on August 1st 2018. Each collectable issue comprises of 132 carefully curated pages bound in a covetable cover.

Inside, you’ll find interviews with creatives Annie admires; discover beautiful furniture Annie loves; sneak peeks inside homes that inspire Annie; and travel to off-the-beaten-track destinations Annie has explored. All from the comfort of your home! The fun doesn’t finish once you’ve read the issue, either. Each edition also features a range of Chalk Paint® projects (suitable for all abilities, from absolute amateurs to Chalk Paint® connoisseurs) with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Once you’ve closed the pages and with a new creative confidence you’ll definitely want to follow one of these how-to’s and bring some more colour and joy into your home!

Issue 3 includes two free stencils designed by Annie Sloan. They're completely exclusive to The Colourist, and inside you’ll also find a step-by-step guide by the inimitable Jeanie Simpson, previous Annie Sloan Painter in Residence, demonstrating how to create a masterpiece of your own at home! To see the Art Deco inspired stencils in use, click here
