Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1

If you could only have one book in your Zentangle library, this is the one. The Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1 is the perfect Zentangle gift. It describes the Zentangle Method™ in detail and offers much much more.

The Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1 is literally a CZT-in-a-book:

“This book is an ‘old-world’ instructional that is simple in its delivery but with enough information to gently guide the novice, or enlighten the master. Whoever reads this, will find what they seek. Hidden in the margins and borders and exemplars are inspirations. Each time you leaf through its folios, you will find something new to spark your creativity. Each time you study it, you may find yourself going just a bit beyond what you previously thought possible.

Working solely on white tiles with black ink, this book digs deep into the fundamentals of the Zentangle method and teaches the techniques and tools you need to take your Zentangle practice where you want.”

Zentangle Primer - Volume 1

Now available in both Hardcover ($49.95 US) and Softcover ($23.95 US) editions.

Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!” ~ Kris H

The Official Zentangle Kit

The Official Zentangle Kit makes a wonderful gift that includes an instructional booklet and DVD and all the supplies necessary to get started with this relaxing enjoyable art form.

Why buy an Official Zentangle Kit? As Zentangle’s founders explain,

“To understand and appreciate something fully, it’s good to learn the basics as they were developed. We regularly receive emails from people who finally bought a Zentangle Kit, and they inevitably say how much more they discovered there is to the Zentangle Method, how beautiful the Kit is itself, how enjoyable the DVD is, and how much more pleasure they now receive from creating Zentangle art.

We invite you to get a Zentangle Kit to appreciate it’s beauty, quality and the potential inspiration for creativity that it offers you and whoever else you decide to give one to.”
