Below is the official announcement from Cherryl Moote about her new book. I had the chance to take a look at it last week and it's lovely. This is not a Zentangle® book, but rather, a how-to-draw-plants book that uses the Zentangle approach to drawing. It also has interesting facts and observations about the plants and how to use them in your own artwork. Also note that this is a "real" ebook, not a pdf, so you will need to have a device and software that can read this format, ie: iBooks on an iPhone or iPad.
Moote Points is excited to release our first ebook!
The Tangled Tropical Garden
by Cherryl Moote
The lush, tropical foliage of Maui is the inspiration for The Tangled Tropical Garden. Tanglers will find step-by-step instructions for drawing a variety of leaves, flowers and ferns using simple botanical forms and their favourite tangle patterns. This ebook is overflowing with vibrant colour and verdant greens, encouraging watercolour and coloured pencil enthusiasts to add a splash of visual impact to their work. Cherryl Moote is an experienced book and paper artist and author of a series of books and DVDs known for their clear, thorough, studio-tested instruction style. Cherryl is proud to be a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) and has revelled in the opportunity to richly illuminate this book with tangles and Zentangle inspired artwork of her own. ISBN 978-0-9784951-6-9, epub format

This booklet is the first in a series of Tangled Garden titles. The Tangled Garden Series offers tanglers and garden art enthusiasts the opportunity to explore a variety of types of gardens and drawing styles while creating drawings in a relaxing, playful and colourful way. Each book in the series will be available as an ebook that is overflowing with vibrant colour and verdant greens, encouraging watercolour and coloured pencil enthusiasts to add a splash of visual impact to their work. Step-by-step instructions for drawing and generous examples of sketchbook and finished artwork are featured throughout the series. A print version of the series will be published in 2014 collecting the ebook titles from the series into The Tangled Garden (ISBN 978-0-9784951-7-6).
Here is an update from Cherryl about the PAPER edition of this book:
I am aiming for March 2014 for the book as the latest date for publication. It will likely be about the same number of pages and price as All Tangled Up which means around 120 pages and $40. We will sell it through the retailers that carry it online, CZTs and our own website. Amazon isn’t a possibility for us at this point as our post office is really slow and I just can’t do mailings every day to meet the rush orders.
