Goddesses of Flora Coloring Book Review
This Korean coloring book is part of a series by the artist Lee II-Sun who has created a number of coloring books including Secretly and Happily which I have previously reviewed here. You may have already seen the rest of the books in the series, Lifestyle of Loving Venus and Art Trips of a Muse in one of my previous coloring book hauls or Korean coloring book hauls, on You Tube.
A lovely You Tube viewer requested that I drag this one out of the shelf and give it my long delayed review 🙂 As I have such a pile up of coloring books to review, and not enough time to review them, this is often the best way to remind me of a gorgeous book that is sitting on the shelf waiting for its debut in front of the camera 🙂
Cover & Layout
A textured dust jacket protects the coloring book depicts our goddesses, carousels and gorgeous flowers. The color printing is in gorgeous pastels and of course, there’s a cute little bunny on the cover. Purple foil for accents has also been used. On the back cover, a background of pink frames the publisher’s blurb.
Beneath the dust jacket is a glossy card cover with gold printing of the cover art. You could color this if your mediums could permeate the gloss.
You can easily distinguish the books in the series as the spines are all a different color. This one has a lovely pink spine and the others blue and purple.
Goddesses of Flora measures approximately 25cm x 25cm.
A kraft colored paper protects the book both front and back. This is followed by a colored title page. This would be the best place to test out your mediums.
Following on there are 5 illustrations that have pre printed color elements on them. This is helpful for those, like me, that have difficulty choosing colors. For colorists that are confident with their colors, the rest of the illustrations do not have pre colored elements on them. Each facing page in this colored section is a gorgeous pastel color.
Illustrations are printed on one side of smooth, off white, medium quality paper. On the reverse there is text in Korean and a small image which is different on each page. Presumably this is telling a story, but I am unable to translate the meaning. Some of the illustrations do abut the spine, but with a bit more use the spine should relax enough for ease of coloring.
Goddesses of Flora Coloring Book Images and Illustrations
It is fun just leafing through this coloring book looking for the Goddesses or fairy like creatures that are depicted on each page. Some of them are so itty bitty it is easy to miss them if you are rushing. Throughout the book the lovely Goddesses are present in a variety of scenes. There is something for everyone with castles, illustrations representing famous cities in the world, gorgeous fairies, an abundance of various types of flowers. I presume that the theme of the book is the various flowers around the world both in real life and as imagined.
The line art is black and crisp and very easy to see. Whilst there are elements in images that have large open spaces suitable for colorists with a minor visual impairment, most images have a lot of detail on the page which may prove challenging.
