Colour Our Collections Week (3-7 February 2020)

The first week of February is ‘Color Our Collections’ week. This annual event, organised by the New York Academy of Medicine, invites libraries and museums all over the world to celebrate their collections with colour.

Whatever you choose to colour with – whether coloured pencils, felt-tips, crayons, pastels or paint – click on the images below, print the colouring sheets, and get colouring!  You can share your creations on social media by tagging us and adding the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.

These beautiful plates are from Illustrations of the zoology of South Africa by Andrew Smith (1797-1872), published between 1838 and 1850.
