Traverse a lush and abandoned Eden, escaping the everyday 
for a world waiting to come to life

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 for your coloring tools. A Walk in Eden is a 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 world of A Walk in Eden to life.

Praise for A Walk in Eden

I got sucked in as soon as I opened it […] some pages feature great close-ups of his creations, and there’s just so much depth and detail in all the images. Indeed, some of these pages are so dense that you could easily colour away as you attain a trance-like meditative state. Consider me converted.

Pete Redrup, The Quietus

... A Walk In Eden is as delightful, as one might imagine. Pushing his intricate Big Questions style to new extremes, Nilsen presents serene but somewhat creepy alien landscapes, filled with strange flora and fauna and abandoned technology.

The Comics Journal

[Anders gives] us a disturbingly beautiful (or should that read beautifully disturbing) vision of fantastical flora and fauna that might owe something to the designs of Ernest Haeckel but remains utterly Nilsenian in the intricacy of form and the fusion of the alien with the familiar.

The Herald Scotland

... an apocalyptic world filled with freaky flora and fauna along with remnants of a long forgotten society

Coloring Book Addict

... a tripped-out surrealist dream-Eden if drawn by Dali, Ernst Haeckel, and kiddie-show cartoonists ... [A Walk In Eden is] engaging and wants to tell you its stories, as-is, but I can only image how much richer it becomes after coloring it in yourself.
