Fancy a break from coloring books but still want to relax with something mindful? This large format book contains twelve geometric images and over 1400 stickers to place into the numbered spaces. The follow up to Animetrics, these images are more varied and range from flowers to a skull, Statue of Liberty, birds, animals and leaves. Each single-sided image has been split up into geometric shapes. Turn to the back and find the relevant page of stickers, peel them off and stick them into the right places. It is harder than you think to find the right one and the images are very striking once complete with their bold single color backgrounds.

Printed onto thick, shiny paper with a plain back, there are no perforations for easy removal, but if you first draw a pencil line and use a sharp knife, you should be able to remove them for framing. The sticker sheets are perforated so you can remove these for easier working (why not make all the pages perforated?), and the stickers are easy to remove, but be careful to stick them exactly in the “frame” or you will see some white showing. Older children will enjoy this and adults too; I hope this won’t be the last of this attractive and relaxing series.
