“Can not say how much I love this book!” I’ve been wondering where this book has been all my life? It’s a great book of Gods, Goddesses and mythological figures. Figures depicted with care and reverence, not just the standard Greco-Roman faire either. It’s peppered with Native American, Egyptian, West African, Hindu, Buddhist deities and figures. And its done in the Art Nouveau style, there are details but not too many as you can add your own. Plus the info about each figure depicted is great and adds some humor. Each drawing/peice is one sided so ideal for watercolor, markers or gel pens as long as you slip a blank sheet behind. If you like Mythology and Art Nouveau you won’t be disappointed. Can’t wait for who volume 2 brings us. ~Roshshonna L. Ridout
“Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs Up!” Full disclosure: the artist/writer is my younger brother. Don’t let that fool you about my high rating as he’s been the bane of my existence most of my life, especially during adolescence. This coloring book, however, is really a testament to his creativity. It’s not just the pictures, it’s the informative, yet very amusing, little descriptions that make it special. I love it and have even bought more that one copy…which reminds me, don’t you think he should’ve tossed me a complimentary copy or two? Brothers, good grief. ~Jaye
