Book Review: World of Color (Worlds) Paperback Coloring Book by Kerby Rosanes

World of Color (Worlds) Paperback Coloring Book
by Kerby Rosanes
October 18, 2022
Publisher: Plume
From the global coloring sensation, a new, dazzling compilation of colorists' favorite images from Kerby Rosanes's stupefying Worlds series.

World of Color is a book of coloring challenges that showcase the internationally bestselling illustrator's astounding artistic skill through eighty pages of super-detailed artwork in Kerby's signature style. Loyal fans and newcomers alike will be entranced and enthralled as they step into his singular imagination. 
Featuring a full-color sixteen-page section at the beginning to display the work of some of Kerby's most talented fans, the original art in this section will demonstrate the incredible, unique approaches that colorists can try their hands at in the subsequent pages.

It is important to note that this is a collection of colorists' favorite Kerby Rosanes drawings. There are no new images in this coloring book. I noticed some people have given a poor review for this coloring book because they thought there would be new pages. I knew what I was getting into when I received a copy for review.

The artwork is of course, amazing. These pages may seem like they are for expert-level coloring artists, but you don't have to be. You can do your own thing and practice more advanced coloring techniques shown in the beginning by the colorists who chose the artwork included. And instead of the colorist giving commentary on their techniques, Kerby gives it! So you get his perspective about how his images were colored.

Check out the Look Inside feature on Amazon to see some of the artwork. It is always a joy to see Kerby's artwork. Excuse me while I find my coloring pencils...

  1. Great post! I had a lot of interest in Greek mythology when I was a kid, I even had coloring books with Greek gods, a hobby that still haunts me to this day. I would like to continue to be interested in this subject, because it's a good way to broaden my horizons.

  2. Yes, I too have long been interested in this subject, and recently came across a site where you can learn more about the Greek gods and their symbols, you can follow the link and check it out, it's an interesting storyboard that tells about it, quite simply and understandably.
