Very little to read...but a great coloring book that presents unique perspectives on many mythological creatures.

Dieses ist mein momentanes Lieblingsmalbuch. Die Seiten sind angenehm glatt und mittelmäßig dick. Es lässt sich gut darauf malen.
Die Zeichnungen sind einfach genial für Fantasyfans. Hie gibt es alles von Drachen, über Meerjungfrauen und andere mythische Wesen. Bei den anderen Büchern des Autors/Zeichners sind viele Seiten mit leerem Raum, den man selbst füllen soll. Das ist in diesem Buch hier, Gott sei Dank, nicht der Fall.

Mythomorphia is illustrated by Kerby Rosanes, and published and kindly sent to me to review by Michael O’Mara Books. This is the third and final book in the series after Animorphia and Imagimorphia. This book has a mythical theme and is a bit less intricate and less morphing than the first two books and contains fewer alien creatures than Animorphia too, that being said, it’s still incredible and really has to be seen to be believed, it’s probably the best book on the market with a mythological theme because of the sheer variety of creatures pictured.

The book is 25cm square, the same size as Animorphia and other bestsellers by JB and MM, it’s paperback with a black card cover with bright red lettering and a dragon (UK copy: other countries’ editions have different coloured lettering but the content is the same in all of the books titled Mythomorphia) in Kerby’s signature style which hints at what’s inside. The paper is bright white, very lightly textured and medium thickness, it doesn’t appear to shadow with water-based fineliners as long as you’re careful but do always check your pens somewhere inconspicuous to make sure you don’t ruin any reverse images. The paper is good for pencils and allows for a few layers for blending and shading. The ink does transfer a little when pressure is applied so when you’re using pencils pop a scrap piece of paper behind to avoid transfer. The book contains 80 images which are printed double-sided and include single (18) and double-page spreads (including 7 paired images which don’t enter the spine and have separate but similar designs on each page, and 24 traditional double-page spreads which do enter the spine and aren’t stand-alone images). The book has a glue- and stitch-bound spine which is fairly tight on arrival and the images are borderless so you do lose a strip of each image into the spine and unfortunately a number of the double-page spreads do have large sections of the creature’s body which enter the gutter however these are accessible if you break the spine. The content itself is all based around mythology and mythological creatures and a truly huge range are pictured from unicorns to mermaids, a hydra to a phoenix, different types of dragons and loads of hybrid creatures including a basilisk, manticore, cockatrice, faun, griffin and many, many more. While many of these creatures are drawn in Kerby’s typical morphine style, a number of them are drawn without morphs and simply as scenes. The morphing parts consist of all sorts of things from rock, flames and waves to smoke, flowers, bats and trees as well as a couple in Kerby’s most well-known style including lots of random objects, plants and swirls. The images are incredible and as always, they’re packed with content to look at and colour, the range of mythological creatures is astounding and a number of them were beasts I’d never heard of so I’ve had a great time researching them and the stories behind them!

In terms of mental health, this is one book that’s absolutely fantastic for distraction! It takes quite a lot of concentration to identify all of the parts of the picture let alone start choosing colours so this really is a book that will help you get through the days when your mind is racing and you need to be able to switch off. It’s not a book for the faint-hearted because each image takes a very long time and a lot of work but it’s so worth it and the effects you can create are amazing! This book doesn’t have any pages where you need to add your own doodles, I’m really pleased about this because I can’t draw at all so I’m glad that all of them are finished this time and ready to colour! The images are very cohesive and they contain such a variety of creatures, most of the images have some shading and texture drawn in but not loads (check out the pictures below to decide if you like this feature or not). The line thickness varies throughout but mainly sticks around the thin mark so you need fairly good vision and fine motor control, but definitely not perfect to enjoy this book! There is also a treasure hunt with 3 pages at the back of the book showing all of the items you can hunt for within the images, followed by thumbnails showing the answers. This book is ideal for those of you who have a fairly good attention span so that you can really get involved in the images and the content is so absorbing that you really do get out of your head and away from your thoughts and become immersed in what you’re colouring. The images have a variety of intricacy and detail levels so you can use simpler images on bad days and more detailed images on days where you’re able to focus better so it’s a great book for those of you with fluctuating conditions. Because the beasts are mythological there are no “correct” colour schemes so you can really go to town with your outlandish colour schemes or if you need a bit of help then have a quick Google, you’re sure to find film or art representations of most of them that you can use as inspiration for your colour choices.

I would highly recommend this book for male and female colourers who love all things weird, wonderful, and mythological. This book is packed with amazing images that are great fun to colour, it’s stunning, overwhelming at times and one that really gets your creative juices flowing so grab your pencils and get colouring mythology! ...more

In den letzten Jahren sind Ausmalbücher für Erwachsene zum richtigen Trend geworden. Nach einem großen Boom im Jahr 2015 und 2016 erschienen auf einmal Unmengen von Büchern in den verschiedensten Illustrationsstilen und mit den verschiedensten Themen, von Mandalas über niedliche Tierbilder und florale Muster bis hin zu Schimpfwörtern (!!) und meditativen Malübungen.

Der Suchbegriff "Malbuch für Erwachsene" bringt auf Amazon zur Zeit 2.446 Ergebnisse, das englische Äquivalent "coloring book for adults" ganze 12.900!

Worauf ich hinauswill: es ist für einen Künstler inzwischen gar nicht mehr so einfach, sich mit einem Malbuch von der Masse abzuheben. Aber Kerby Rosanes schafft das in meinen Augen mühelos, denn seine Illustrationen sind nicht nur irrsinnig komplex, sondern auch originell und abwechslungsreich und voller liebevoller Details, die man erst beim Ausmalen wirklich entdeckt. Da wächst ein kleiner Wald auf dem Rücken eines Greifen, ein Rentier balanciert auf der Nase eines riesigen Trolls, Blumen sprießen aus dem Gefieder eines Phönix... Ich könnte mir die Bilder schon unausgemalt stundenlang anschauen! Darin sind übrigens auch kleine Gegenstände versteckt, die man finden soll, wie in einem Wimmelbildspiel.

In "mythomorphia" widmet sich der Künstler den Wesen aus Sagen und Märchen, und zwar aus der ganzen Welt. Trolle aus der skandinavischen Mythologie finden sich hier genauso wie ein chinesischer Drache, ein japanischer Fuchsgeist oder ein Zyklop aus der griechischen Sagenwelt. Alle Bilder sind sehr fein gezeichnet und durch Schraffierungen sorgfältig schattiert. Die meisten Illustrationen erstrecken sich in voller Breite über eine Doppelseite, und da das Buch ein Format von 25x25cm hat, ist man mit jeder davon eine Weile beschäftigt!

Die Bilder sind wohl nichts, was man schnell nebenher ausmalt, aber eine lohnende Herausforderung, wenn man bereit ist, etwas Zeit zu investieren.

Die Papierqualität ist hervorragend. Die Seiten sind dick genug, dass Stifte nicht so schnell durchdrücken, und die Oberfläche ist glatt – aber nicht so glatt, dass Buntstifte nicht mehr satt auftragen würden. Die Seiten sind doppelseitig bedruck und alle Illustrationen sind nur einmal enthalten, ohne Duplikate.

The below review is from my blog. For a video flip through and full review, go to https://colorwithiris.com/2017/07/17/...

Lets begin with the paper. It’s a very nice paper, thick, smooth and can take a bit of beating. The images are printed on both sides as usual. Some are double spreads and getting into the binding is a bit of a hassle but not the worst I’ve seen.

The imagery is just amazing. It covers all kinds of mythological creatures, dragons, medusa, even a harpy, you name it, it’s here. It The below review is from my blog. For a video flip through and full review, go to https://colorwithiris.com/2017/07/17/...

Lets begin with the paper. It’s a very nice paper, thick, smooth and can take a bit of beating. The images are printed on both sides as usual. Some are double spreads and getting into the binding is a bit of a hassle but not the worst I’ve seen.

The imagery is just amazing. It covers all kinds of mythological creatures, dragons, medusa, even a harpy, you name it, it’s here. It’s Kerby Rosanes at his finest, while it’s absolutely clear it’s his work, most of it still feels fresh and new, some images are a bit of a repeat from the past (the horse with the roses for example) but generally they’re all very new and exciting. While the images are still crazy busy, most of them have a different way to create the confusion rather than the tiny funny critters we know from the previous books, that definitely contributes to the fresh feeling.
The images are rather crazy looking and can be intimidating but if you’re scared of the color choices with so many tiny tidbits, start with a limited palette, pick out some pencils and stick to those, it will be SO much easier, trust me. Try it!
Overall, if you’re in any way into Kerby’s work, do get this book for sure, you’ll love it. Hell, I got two! True story. My daughter is a fan of his so the second one is for her. ...more

I own this book now, and while it isn't exactly a book you "read", there are lots of small details to catch, and things to find hidden in the art! I have yet to color anything in it, but I have pored over the illustrations and made notes on where all the hidden items are, and what my favorite mythical creatures are!
Another astounding addition to Kerby Rosanes' collection of coloring books!

My favorite of the 3! BREAK THE SPINE! It’s an amazing coloring book but the details on some pages are deep in the middle so open the page you want to color and open it backwards until the threading is exposed and it’ll be easier to color. Makes it easier to take it out and frame your favs!

Not a fan of their hidden image. It detracts terribly from the drawing.

This and the accompanying Imagimorphia colouring book are great - really imaginative, unusual pictures and intricate enough to keep older colourers amused for a while. Recommended.
