Disclaimer – I was not paid or compensated for this review.
I recently found out that Keeby Rosanes is working on his second book, Imagimorphia! Due for release early in 2016, you can preorder Imagimorphia at The Book Depository.
Publisher – Michael O’Mara Books
Illustrator – Kerby Rosanes
Pages – 96
This book, like many books for adult colouring, is square. It is a larger square than most, about 25cm x 25cm and is a paperback book.
The pages are lovely, thick and smooth. I have had no issues with bleeding, although I have only tried fineliners and pencils. Some images do go into the spine, although this yields and becomes pliable with some use.
This book is gorgeous. The animals are intricately and wonderfully drawn, the details are stunning. Within and around the images, there are doodles – some miscellaneous objects, ghost characters and random animals. People familiar with Doodle Invasion will recognise the doodles. This doesn’t bother me, but I know some people wish the book was available without the doodles, the animal images are that stunning.
Some of the pages contain prompts – images that are incomplete with a prompt to complete it, a peacock with blank feathers and instructions to fill them in, a page with bees asking you to draw some more bees.
The book also incorporates a hidden object game, with the list being in the front of the book. The doodles make this somewhat more difficult than other books, but it is doable! The answers are also in the back of the book.
I have found this book amazing for nights when I cannot sleep and times when my pain is so bad that I need to rest but I need mental stimulation.
There are no patterns in this book, but the combination of gorgeous animal pictures, doodles, prompts to create and the hidden object aspect will mean that you are kept busy for hours with one picture!
This is not a book for times when your concentration is low, this is a book when you are able to concentrate and need something to focus on and entrance you for some time.
