History and Literature is more fun when you can COLOR it

Today is your last chance to participate in #ColorOurCollections.  This is a week long initiative where many museums around the world have opened up some of their collections for anyone to download and color.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from the Folger Shakespeare Library.
Woodcut in Edward Topsell, Historie of Serpents. London, 1608

Or how about some roses from the University of North Carolina Libraries?

Floral catalogue of Pomona Hill Nurseries, Pomona, N.C. : J. Van Lindley, proprietor : roses, chrysanthemums and other green-house plant, 1889

 

 A complete list of participating libraries can be found here on the Library Journal website.  
 
Enjoy coloring!
