Mythic World

ISBN: 9780593186022
Availability: In Stock: Click Title to See if it's in CAMBRIDGE or BOSTON
Published: Plume - March 29th, 2022

A coloring book of mythic detail. Rosanes' art is gorgeous enough to hang in just black and white, but also allows for a ridiculous amount of detailed coloring without the repetition of other detailed coloring books. Bring myths and monsters to life with your own flair! (Particularly great if you, say, happen to be stuck inside with limited mobility)
