Mini Reviews: Love aesthetics? Check these out!

Hey guys!! So I was looking through my eGalleys and I found some that are truly pleasing to the eye. I’m a really visual person and I found these books so satisfying to read and to look at. Here are three that I found.

Mortals and Immortals of Greek Mythology by Francoise Rachmuhl

Mortals and Immortals of Greek Mythology

I went through a mythology phase when I was a kid so I couldn’t give up this offer! I really love the style of art in this collection. Full length pages accompany the interesting stories, and the art is absolutely beautiful and the colours are so satisfying. The bold colours and attention to detail really give the book an artistic touch. With amazing art and elegant narration, this book is a great method of encouraging younger students to become more interested in Greek gods and heroes.

Kawaii Doodle Cuties: Sketching Super-Cute Stuff from around the World by Pic Candle, Zainab Khan 

Kawaii Doodle Cuties: Sketching Super-Cute Stuff from around the World

This how-to-draw book is honestly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I mean, the cover page says it all. The book is divided into several topics (food, animals, clothing, plants, transportation, etc) and has many easy to follow drawings. They were really intuitive and the outcome looks amazing and adorable! I love the pastel palette of the book and the consistency of style. At the very end, there’s a section that acts like both I-spy and coloring sheets. If you’re looking to learn how to draw adorable pictures, this is it.

What Really Makes America Great by Creative Action Network

What Really Makes America Great

Great coffee table book. Each page tells of one thing that makes America great. Ordered in alphabetical order and ranging from baseball to freedom of speech, the pages are filled with responses from Americans around the nation. Pictures accompany the text, in which the art and calligraphy are amazing. One aspect that I love about is how the book is the compilation of thoughts of many writers and works of many artists. It truly is a melange of all the thoughts of America.
