We are passionate about biology. The Anatomy with Love Coloring Book contains coloring activities that explore the human body. The goal is to encourage learning, exploration, and reflection on our own body and health through the act of coloring.
Coloring is a stress-free activity that relaxes the amygdala — the fear center of the brain — and allows your mind to get the rest it needs. But coloring has other indirect health benefits, as well.
The colouring pages contain anatomically correct drawings of the organs of the human body, decorated by Hungarian folk motifs from various regions of Hungary and Transylvania.

Risks and challenges
Since the artwork is 80% finished, the main challenge will be to reach the $5700 target. Both books and postcards will be printed on demand once the project ends, and they will be shipped in November.
It is very hard to compete with big publishers because of the large numbers they handle and the fact that they print and produce most of the books in other countries where it's cheaper. Anatomy with Love will be printed, bound and assembled in Budapest, Hungary, and will be packed and shipped carefully one by one.
Unexpected delays may occur due to Life, but we are expecting no delay in the timing schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
