Animorphia 

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.

Cover

Publisher – Michael O’Mara Books

Illustrator – Kerby Rosanes

Pages – 96

Book

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.

Images

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.

Doodles finished


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.

A Creative Prompt


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.
Health

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.

If you would like to purchase a copy, it is available from Amazon (US) via this link or the Book Depository via this link.

  1. I’m not too sure about this book because of the weird ghost doodles, etc, but I think it is amazing just the same. I’d like to ask you a question, though, Ali. How do you cover up the instructions on the pages telling you what to do with the blank parts of the page? I think the text detracts from the pictures, and would definitely want them covered up somehow. Thanks once again for a wonderful review.

  2. I bought the white out tape to put over it. Because I can’t draw and won’t be doing them I will cover up the text and just colour the little that is on the page.
