Anisa Clare and Travis Baribeau are back with two more books in the Absurd colouring series, this time taking us on a journey through a freaky carnival and bizarre twists on traditional fairytales! Read my review of their first book here. The Absurd books have a unique format of part colouring, part activity and part storybook, featuring unique characters from the weird world of the Absur'dians! Take a peek into both books below...
The Absurd books always follow the same physical format: A4 size with soft-touch covers, and extremely smooth pages. The paper itself has a coating that can resist gel pens and certain pencils, making blending somewhat difficult. Markers, waterbased or otherwise, will all bleed through this paper so unless you're colouring the extra single-sided pages I'd advise caution.
Each book is absolutely crammed with content, meaning you get a bang for your buck! If activity books aren't your thing but you love the style of illustration, JUST COLOURING books are available to buy too :)
Here are my finished pictures, coloured with Staedtler Triplus felts, Copics, Tombows and PanPastels.
These books were given to me in exchange for an honest review. You can find the books on Amazon here:
