Ever thought that some of the illustrations in our collections would make for some amazing colouring in books? Well so have we! And so have lots of other museums, libraries, and archives around the world. 1st February 2016 was the beginning of a week long celebration of collections and colouring in on social media, spearheaded by The New York Academy of Medicine.
So, since colouring in items from our collections is, shall we say, “frowned upon”, we have created this downloadable colouring book for you to have a go at colouring in pages from our library collection. Just download it and print it off, dig out your pens and pencils, and get colouring in! Be sure to share your creations with us @shakespearebt and using the hashtag #colorourcollection
