It’s #ColorOurCollections week on Twitter. From February 1st through 5th, institutions from around the world (the New York Academy of Medicine’s Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health has a running list of participants) are sharing images from their special collections for you to download and color. Our coloring pages include anatomical drawings, incunabula, phrenological diagrams, etchings, and illustrations.

We look forward to seeing what you do with our collections; be sure to share your work using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and we’ll retweet our favorites.
