Comments for Women of the Ukiyo-e

Women of the Ukiyo-eWomen of the Ukiyo-e: 01/16/08

Over Christmas I gave myself a break from my reading schedule and instead enjoyed reading through and coloring in this Dover coloring book of Women of the Ukiyo-e by Ming-Ju Sun. This thin book contains thirty line drawing reproductions of women drawn in theo ukiy-e style.

The copy I was reading was actually a Bookcrossing book ring, so I could only color one page. I liked the book enough that I might get myself a copy so I can color all the pages. My husband is a fan of the ukiyo-e woodblock prints, though he prefers the landscapes.

If you like to color an want to learn something at the same time, I highly recommend Dover's series of coloring books.

"I love to color! I find it very relaxing. I don't get hung up on creating art, just choosing colors. My husband's also into Japanese art. We have a fabric wall-hanging of a samurai in the living room."
