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 2 includes a free stencil designed by Annie Sloan. It’s completely exclusive to The Colourist, and inside you’ll also find a step-by-step guide from the talented Aishi Copely of Annie Sloan HQ, demonstrating how to create a masterpiece of your own at home! Click here for a step-by-step.
