Book Review: Kaleidomorphia: Celebrating Kerby Rosanes's Coloring Challenges by Kerby Rosanes

Kaleidomorphia: Celebrating Kerby Rosanes's Coloring Challenges
by Kerby Rosanes
October 26, 2021
80 pages
Publishing: Plume
An astonishing second compilation of the most striking images taken from the Morphia series, with colored-in examples

Kaleidomorphia is a stunning second compilation of Kerby Rosanes's most remarkable artwork from his beloved mega-bestselling Morphia series. This collection, just like the first, Colormorphia, features a full-color sixteen-page section that showcases some of the most accomplished completed artworks produced by Kerby's fans. These pages demonstrate the range of approaches colorists can experiment with when coloring. 
The artworks displayed in the color section are included in the black-and-white section of the book, too, giving the reader the opportunity to duplicate the approach should they wish. In addition, there are a variety of images to color featuring the very best from Kerby's Morphia portfolio.

This is my second Kerby Rosanes coloring book. The first was the beautiful Fragile World (review HERE). And Kaleidomorphia is just as beautiful but with a fantasy flair!

I opened it up and marveled at the artwork. There is no way I can do these pictures justice with my coloring skills, lol. But that won't stop me!
Rosanes also had talented colorists color some of the pages. He included them at the front of the coloring book along with where to find each artist online and his thoughts on their techniques

Kaleidomorphia is a coloring lover's dream!
