The Book of Goddesses draws inspiration from the many goddesses honored throughout history in various cultures around the globe. This lavishly illustrated, greatly expanded 10th Anniversary Edition of Kris Waldherr’s beloved classic pays homage to 100 of these revered women (74 more than the original edition), and is structured around the feminine rites of passage: Beginnings, Love, Motherhood, Creativity, Strength, and Transformation. These goddess stories tell of women’s innate divinity, dignity, and potency—their ability to create life from their bodies, their strength of character, their magic.
This visually stunning book, by an author/illustrator with an enormous fan base, is a testament to the power, passion, wisdom, and beauty of women everywhere, in all stages of life. (Goodreads)
This book was sent to me by the author for review. I actually came across it years ago and was very impressed by the artwork and research that went into the book. Page after page of beautifully illustrated Goddesses adorn tales of their myths. From Spider Woman, Rati, Venus, Oshun, Juno and many more.
If you want a book that will stay on your library or ebook shelves for a very long time, check out this volume. I received it as a digital ebook for review from the author and am pleased to say that the quality is perfection. The pictures and words are intact and I am able to view them on my Nookcolor and iPad. This has to be my favorite book from Kris Waldherr so far. The attention to detail is beyond measure, and the illustrations just make me happy every time I look at them. There is no greater compliment I can give. This is a forever book for my digital shelf. If I could give ten stars...I would. If you like goddesses and the mysteries of the sacred feminine, make sure you check it out.
