Review of "A Coloring Book of Ancient China," Bellerophon Books

Review of

A Coloring Book of Ancient China, Bellerophon Books ISBN 0883880776

Five out of five stars

 This is both educational and a challenging coloring book for adults. The images are from works created in ancient China and are composed of many tiny details, giving the artist an essentially infinite number of possibilities to develop. Most of the pictures are copies of museum pieces and there is a short caption of text giving the message of the image as well as the origin and current location.

 There are many ways in which to study history and learn about other cultures. While this book is not for everyone, it certainly is a worthy object of study and artistic activity.
