One of my blogging goals for 2019 is to start reviewing adult coloring books again. So today I'm reviewing the Words of Wisdom: Quotes from Shakespeare book of posters to color. These are big sheets -- 9 1/2" x 12" and can be framed -- I love the bigger format! I got this book from Usborne/Kane Miller here, and I'm not sure if it's available elsewhere or not.
The pages are thick like cardstock, so they're perfect for gel pens, which is what I've been using with it. But if you're into pastels or watercolors, it would work really well with those too, I think.
They've got a nice selection of plays, not just the super-famous ones, and quotations on lots of different topics. I'm highlighting two lines that involve love today, just cuz it IS We Love Shakespeare Week, after all.
One of my favorite things about this book is that, on the back of each poster, it tells you a little about the play that line is from! This is what's on the back of the "Love comforteth like sunshine after rain" poster above:
The posters are in a wide variety of styles. There's only one with a line from Hamlet, and I haven't colored it yet, but it reminds me a little of Monty Python:
I'm saving this one to color in October because it's so Halloween-y:
This post is one of my contributions to We Love Shakespeare Week, which I'm hosting on my other blog, Hamlette's Soliloquy. Come join the fun!
