A keen observer of the natural world and the mystical treasures contained within, Anders Nilsen uses lush, inky lines to craft an enchanting, meditative journey. A Walk in Eden is part colouring book, part fantastical view of primeval creation, with an exquisite mix of sprawling landscapes and close-up examinations of plants, fungi, and minerals think giant crystal formations emerging out of pools surrounded by lush vegetation and flowers the size of small trees. Though this is a world void of humans, here and there are small reminders of our presence. Informed by the designs of Ernst Haeckel and other early scientific and botanical illustration, Nilsen's world is intricate, playful, and inspired, waiting for you to make it your own. With 80+ full-page drawings, Nilsen invites you to join in the fun and bring the adult- and kid-friendly colouring book A Walk in Eden to life.show more

Review quote

[Big Questions] is filled with verdant deep-space landscapes rendered in a lush stipple and hatching inking technique and with sparely rendered characters that misapply mystical significance to their circumstances. Publishers Weekly. Rapturous, meticulous pen-and-ink pointillism sprawling, uncanny work. New York Timesshow more
