Colour Me Mindful: Enchanted Creatures – A Review

Disclaimer – Please read this disclosure about my use of affiliate links which are contained within this post.

LINK illustrated by the very talented Anastasia Catris and published and very kindly sent to me to review by Orion Books. This book contains 50 images of all things enchanted. This book contains just about every mythical and enchanted creature you could think of from the phoenix to the jackalope, mermaids to tree spirits, dragons to unicorns and so many more. The images are almost all single page spreads and are mostly a centralised illustration of one or two of each creature, though there are a couple of repeating patterns including pegasuses (pegasi?) and enchanted mushrooms. This book is much less feminine and “pretty” than Anastasia’s other books and would therefore be very well suited to male and female colourers alike who enjoy the fantastical and mythical.

The images are all drawn in a very thin line which means very sharp pencils or fineliners are essential to enjoy your colouring experience. This book will certainly help to colour you mindful because the intricacy and detail of the drawings lend themselves perfectly to keeping you focused and occupied and grounded in the present moment. Despite being small, the images take plenty of time to complete and really do keep you busy for hours. Many of the creatures are covered in detailed patterns which create small spaces to colour within or to colour over if that’s too much detail for your liking. There is no writing on the pages but some have spaces where you could easily add your own patterns or animals to truly make this book your own. This book is really beautiful and it’s another spectacular addition to Anastasia’s growing Colour Me Mindful collection.
