About the Author
Ms. Rakusin has published two books in her Coloring Books for Big Girls series. These books feature Ms. Rakusin's pen-and-ink drawings of strong womyn, goddesses, and animals.
In 2011, Ms. Rakusin published a divination deck called Journey Cards: Multicultural Goddesses and Imagined Saints for Guidance, Epiphanies, and Revelations. This 55-card deck comes boxed with a 132-page booklet that describes each Goddess and Saint and gives tips for incorporating the deck into one's daily life.
She also has published three hardcover picture books and one softcover dual-language activity book in English and Spanish in her children's series, Dear Calla Roo...Love, Savannah Blue. The characters in the series were inspired by two darling girls: Ms. Rakusin's Great Dane, Savannah Blue, and her niece, Calla Ruth. Pen, ink, and water-soluble chalk were used to create the illustrations. Ms. Rakusin lives and works outside of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

I wrapped them up with a box of watercolor pencils, and still feel great about the choice. My friends color privately, as a way to enhance their own journaling. They take them on group campouts, pass them around at parties, as an ice-breaker for classes, and in the dorm room for everyone to contribute.
But this book is not for everyone. Those looking for more white space to color, need only buy a tablet of plain paper. To find "light" women with sensual curves, tiny waists, full yet sag-free breasts, and delicate features, they need only buy a Cosmo or Seventeen magazine. And Ms. Rakusin's coloring books would be wasted on those who are looking for such female images.
Like the first Coloring Book, this second one is a celebration of REAL women, SPIRITUAL women, and our legitimate boundless vision. Ms. Rakusin demands that we think beyond the media's perception of women's bodies in 2002. Her book is more than a coloring book -- it is an invitation to color outside the lines, and to add whatever we bring to the drawing. It is a rare opportunity to validate our perceptions. You can't help but want to sign it yourself and hang it up!
Most importantly, it is the perfect daily devotional. I can't wait until the third one!

I hate it when an artist doesn't trust anyone to color her creations. If you're going to color in all the parts you think "should" remain black, why are you making coloring books?Published on March 16, 2011 by Book Junkie
I found the art work in this book to be sub-standard and wish that I had seen it before purchasing. Total waste of money in my opinion, was purchased as a gift but will not give... Read morePublished on December 30, 2008 by D. K. Ward
