Three new Zentangle® books coming soon!

Coming Soon - 3 New Zentangle Books!Suzanne McNeill has been busy at her publishing company, Design Originals (now part of Fox Publishing), and today at the Craft & Hobbies Association (CHA) Summer Conference and Trade Show in Rosemont, IL, she is introducing three fun new Zentangle® books.

  1. Zentangle for Kidz!, by CZT® Sandy Steen Bartholomew. This is a comic book guide with Sandy’s cartoon illustrations of her two children doing tangles. I predict this is going to be another Zentangle classic!
  2. Zen Mandalas, by CZT® Suzanne McNeill with art by CZTs Carole Ohl and Margaret Bremner – drawing Mandalas inspired by Zentangle®.
  3. Zentangle 5, by CZT® Suzanne McNeill with contributions from CZTs. This one has 40 more tangles, lots of jewelry inspired by Zentangle®, clay, resin, bottle caps, tags and more.

Congrats, Gals!

As soon as these are available for purchase (soon) I’ll let you know and I’ll be posting my reviews.

Stay tuned …

    OOhhh.. I like the Zen Mandalas!! Can’t wait!!

  • I was at the show today and got to see them all. They are amazingly good! The artwork, the tangles, the new ideas, WOW! They are must haves!

    I can’t wait. 3 more books…… learn from and enjoy…

  • I just got back from the CZT Retreat in Mass. Suzanne was there too and she brought copies of all the books! (She came straight from CHA!) Obviously, I was super excited to see my own book. I’m partial – but I think it looks really good. ;-D I can imagine the Amazon reviews will include a few that go on about how “short” it is. sigh. But I packed as much as I could onto every page… The Mandala book is jaw-dropping (I found it intimidating!) but I will have to challenge myself to learn this form. Zentangle 5 had lots of cool projects with shrink plastic and such. (We all got a preview of Zentangle 6 – but I’m not telling!) There was also another book “Zenspirations…” – not by a CZT – but rather a beautiful book – calligraphy and zentangle-inspired patterns. The variety of books available is incredible. (I love art books!) Cheers.

    wow, just recovered my email and saw this! Can’t wait-especially the Zentangle for Kids. My grandson loves tangling when he’s at my house so I’ll have to get him his own book. Thanks!

  • Wow. You guys are cranking out the Zen-Books! I’m excited!
