Divine Dames: A Review

Well, it is a rainy and miserable day here, but that is the perfect weather to curl up with a good book (especially if you are not interested in college football in a state absolutely bonkers about it). I can assure you that you will not find a better book for your curling up and reading needs than Kayleigh Lebak's Divine Dames. It is entertaining, educational, and absolutely beautiful.

Kayleigh Lebak is, of course, a familiar face in OWARI-Land, and Divine Dames is her latest foray in putting together a book. This time, she's assembled 26 goddesses from a wide range of pantheons across the globe. Each is given a full-page pinup in a distinctive and appropriate style. That's right, you get to see all sorts of approaches in depicting comely and cosmic ladies.

The best part is that Kayleigh has finally broken out her writing skills for the world. Y'see, I've often thought that she has quite a talent for wordsmithery, but it doesn't get used as much in contrast to her ever-developing art abilities. Well, she gives background on each of the beauties in the spotlight. Divine Dames is a feast for the mind as well as the eyes!

You can order Divine Dames via Lulu for the print edition. You can contact the divine Ms. Lebak herself through her site if you are interested in a PDF version! As always, tell her OWARI sent you!

Wow! Thank you very much for the kind words! I had never thought that deciding to write out the profiles for these ladies would be what got your attention, but you're right . . . you've been bugging me to write since, well, ever.

I'm really pleased that you enjoyed the book! I know I enjoyed putting it together. :)

I wouldn't say it is specifically what got my attention, but I was gratified to see it all the same. You can explain your ideas best, so I'm always happy when you do!

And you are welcome, it is a fine, fine book.
