Not technically a book, this postcard set has been long awaited by fans of Animorphia! The postcards are displayed in a 17cm x 12cm and covered in a black and orange image from Animorphia, accented by silver foil.
The binding is similar to what you would find on a notepad, glued and easy to remove. Each postcard is printed on cardstock, and I experienced zero bleeding or shadowing with water or alcohol-based markers, as well as fineliners.
The images are all a mix from Animorphia, adapted for postcard size. Unlike some postcard editions of colouring books, the images aren’t scaled down into impossibly small sizes, but rather are sections of images. These range from a postcard of the doodles contained in an image, or the head of a tiger surrounded by doodles, or a section of the doodles contained in one of the images.
Five of the twenty postcards are black background images, which is a nice amount of variety. Almost half of the images are landscape, with the majority being portrait orientation.
The reverse of the postcards have an area for addressing, an area for a postage stamp and some smaller varied doodles around. I’ve included an example of this in my images.
Intricacy is very similar to the original book, and ranges quite a bit. Some of the images are larger spaces with a handful of doodles and others are made up entirely of small doodles to colour. Line thickness remains moderate throughout.
If you enjoyed the original book, then this is a fantastic addition. Postcard size colouring are fantastic for a smaller colouring project, when you don’t have the time, inclination or concentration to colour a double page spread from Animorphia.
The range of intricacy means that it will most likely be suitable for those with fluctuating concentration levels, as there is a range of less to higher intricacy throughout. Even the most intricate of postcards will not take long, making it perfect for those who often have low concentration levels. I’ve found postcard editions of colouring books fantastic for low mood days, times of high anxiety and times when I am
in a lot of pain – the smaller images and size makes it less intimidating and the variety of intricacy means I can choose my time investment.
The line thickness and intricacy means it most likely is suitable for those with fine motor skills or vision impairments. As always though, please check the images before deciding.
