The Art of the Moulin Rouge {Review}

We spent part of our honeymoon in Paris and one of the things we had to do was visit the Moulin Rouge.  When the musical came out the following year, we saw it right away in the theater and loved knowing we had actually been there.

It's been quite a few years since we've been to Paris, but I was very happy to receive a copy of The Art of the Moulin Rouge to review and create artwork with.

The Art of the Moulin Rouge is part of the adult coloring book genre, but it has so much more than simply pictures to color.

Besides tips on how to make the most of your artwork and coloring pages, the book features adult styled dot-to-dots, color by number designs, and even postcards with artwork from the Moulin Rouge.  Pages are thick, single sided, and perforated, to ensure the best coloring options.  Even permanent markers won't mar subsequent pages.

Designs include the dancers, Parisian audiences, original posters, and the iconic windmill.  All of the designs are classic Moulin Rouge, from the early part of the 19th century, and perfect for any fan of the cabaret or the era in general.

The Art of the Moulin Rouge is available through Quarto Books and would be a lovely Christmas gift, pared up with fancy pens, markers, or colored pencils.  Adult coloring is relaxing and a great way to share art, especially if the actual drawing is not your forte, and The Art of the Moulin Rouge will not disappoint any fan.

Disclosure: I received The Art of the Moulin Rouge from Quarto Books for the purposes of this review.  All opinions are my own.
