Buddhist Symbols has a colorful front cover that beckons you to pick it up. However, all of the symbols inside are black and white line drawings shown on 2 page spreads. The left side page has the symbol while the right side has a short description about the symbol. This in not a comprehensive list of Buddhist symbols but rather there are just a few of the Tibetan Buddhist symbols. There is a short and simple introduction into Buddhism at the beginning of the book as well as a short biography of Siddhartha Gautama. As an amateur artist, I will be using the symbols to create art and know that I will refer to this pocket book frequently.
