Taynikma is a Danish book series. The idea and concept were developed by Merlin P. Mann and Jan Kjær.

The series consists of sixteen volumes, each of which ends with a four-page drawing school. The first volume came out in October 2005; the last, in 2012. The series' publisher was Phabel.

The series was also released in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Russia,[1] and the United Kingdom (first 4 books). The books won the Orla Award in 2007 as the year's best comics in Denmark. In 2010, it won the Taynikma Drawing School by Jan Kjær Orla Prize.

The authors have since started a new Taynikma-book/series.
