New book just released: One Zentangle a Day

I’ve just learned that Houston CZT® Beckah Krahula’s new book One Zentangle A Day is coming out this week. As soon as I receive my copy I’ll post a review, but for those of you who pre-ordered I thought you might want to know it’ll be reaching your mailbox soon!

List price: $22.99, currently selling on Amazon for $12.98. (128 pages, Quarry Books. 9.1 x 8.7 x 0.4 inches)

According to the editors, “One Zentangle A Day is a beautiful interactive book teaching the principles of Zentangles as well as offering fun, related drawing exercises. Zentangles are a new trend in the drawing and paper arts world. The concept was started by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing, by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. … This step-by-step book is divided into 6 chapters, each with 7 daily exercises. Each exercise includes new tangles to draw in sketchbooks, teaches daily tile design, and offers tips on related art principles, and contains an inspirational “ZIA” (Zentangle Inspired Art) project on a tile that incorporates patterns, art principals (sic), and new techniques.”

PS: They also say, “Each mark is called a ‘tangle,’ and you combine various tangles into patterns…” Well, we all know they didn’t quite get that right but hopefully they will correct it. And while they’re at it, it would be great if they’d correct “art principles” too.

Check it out! Here’s the link.

About the Author: “Beckah Krahula is an artist, writer, consultant, product designer, and industry expert. She began her career with the first graphic rubber stamp company in the U.S., and has worked as a full-time mixed media artist ever since. She has worked for publishers, toy designers, and product manufacturers. In 2001, she began filming the Carol Duvall Show, writing the scripts, creating the projects, step outs, and online instructions. After a long career of touring thirty to forty seven weeks a year, in 2001, she began teaching online. In February of 2011 she became a Certified Zentangle Teacher. She lives in Houston, TX.”

  • This book has just come out in Dick Blick on page 9 of their new Christmas catalog as a “kit” At least I think it’s a kit…it’s kind of hard to see what you get for the $17.24. They do not say in the catalog that the book is not out yet. So did they get a shipment first. I think Zentangle has hit the “mainstream” when it gets into the catalogs.

    I am surprised that someone (Blick?) has not figured out how to sell the “tiles” too.
    They do carry the Tiepolo print paper and sell it for $6/sheet.

    I am new to tangling and It didn’t take long to get hooked! So, I bought One Zentangle a Day to help improve my skills. It’s easy to use, has great illustrations, and little stories about Zentangle and tangling as well as examples of how the art of tangling can help relieve stress and provide lovely hours of enjoyment:), which I agree it does do. Love this book!!!!
