Thoughts

This is a nice, well made journal with very nice thick paper. I would liken it to construction paper. It is on the smaller side, but it is a nice size to throw in a bag and take with you. It has nice thick covers and lays flat to make drawing easier.

There are different types of activities inside including tutorials on drawing illuminated letters, tutorials on drawing flourishes, and journal pages for writing or drawing. There are tons of them inside and it would take you awhile to draw them all, so it’s a great value. They do a nice job of showing you how to draw the letters step by step, but I will admit that some of the drawings could be challenging for a novice.

You can use everything from pencils to paint inside. The paper is thick and well suited for most mediums. Overall this is a very nice journal, and even the most seasoned artist would learn a trick or two from it’s pages.

The Illustrated Word: An Illuminated Bible Coloring Journal

Create your own masterpiece with this journal that has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts that have been recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own stunning keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.

 

Thoughts

This is a very nice coloring journal.  It has nice hard covers and a lay flat spine.  The paper is also very thick like construction paper.  This one is mainly a journal with coloring pages.  It does not teach you anything or have tutorials.

All the journaling pages have a full color image of an illustration from a very old bible.  You can look down at the bottom of the page and it will tell you what the image is from and the year.   Then there are also tons of coloring pages all done in the illuminated style.  They are all very intricate and will take a long time to color, so this book is also a great value.  There are tons of lined pages to write on also, so this could be used for quite a long time depending on how much you write.  It would make a great gift for the person who like to take notes and color more than actual drawing.  Overall this journal is beautiful and well worth what it costs.
