Goddesses of Greek Myths  Coloring Book  Review

It’s not often that we see the more feminine side of  Greek Mythology which is the theme of  this coloring book.      The lovely Goddesses are portrayed with flowing locks and beautiful gowns and there is an abundance of  flowers and cherubs in the book to ensure that you are not in any doubt of the theme.

Cover & Layout

The dust jacket features a colored image from within the book.   The pastels used on the cover art with the dainty flowers and butterflies is consistent with the type of illustration you will find in this Japanese coloring book.

The teal green used to border the cover art is featured on the spine and the back cover as well.

On the back cover partially colored art work is shown.      If you are able to study the back cover closely online you will see that some of the lines are not solid outlines but dots.     This dotted line technique has also been used throughout the book in some illustrations.

Ancillary Pages

A decorated title page commences the coloring book with copyright information on the reverse.      You will notice on this page that the line art is black for the flowers but a bronze/brownish black for the title background.      Throughout the book, there are some pages that feature a brown/black ink and others that use a black ink as you can see in the video walk through.

At the end of the coloring book there is a 5 page visual index.    Follow that there is a 3 page summary of the myths, in Japanese text, and lastly a copyright page.    Any of these pages would be the best spot to test out your mediums and see how they perform in the coloring book.

Layout

The art work is printed on both sides of the off white, medium quality paper.

Throughout the book there are 14 pages that are either single page illustrations or double page scenes where the lines do not merge with the spine of the book.    The bulk of the images are double page scenes where the line art does run to the spine of the book.

Some of the illustrations could have been positioned in order to avoid the spine area.

Goddesses of Greek Myths  Images and Illustrations

There are some unusual points about the art work in this coloring book.     First of all the line color changes from a brown/black to a black in some illustrations whether by design or defect,  I do not know.

The line art itself is a finely drawn line and in some cases, art work is outlined in a dotted line only.     These factors, as well as the detail in many of the illustrations, may not be appealing to colorists that have a minor visual impairment.

It appears that the dotted line outline use is used to give a softer finished look to parts of the illustration and help them ease into the background while crisp outlined images remain more distinct in the picture.

You will find many lovely Goddesses in this coloring book to color as well as a male counterpart,  animals and some buildings.    Heavily featured are flowers which appear as part of the illustration or in the decor of a room.    You will also find some accessory pages that feature small elements that relate to the theme of the book like gems, spears and arrows.

As is often the case,  there are several pages of  filler type images or wallpaper patterns.  Often these are useful to break up the variety in the book but personally I don’t care for them.      The positive I see with filler pages is that I can use my medium of choice on the reverse without worrying about damaging that page.

Bonus

The last page of the book is a set of 6 message cards that you can color in and cut out.    These are printed on a beige, slightly textured paper which differs from the paper used throughout the coloring book.

I’m Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I’m all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
