Color Our Collections 2023

by the NYAM Library Team

Today we conclude our week-long celebration of Color Our Collections 2023.

Each February, fellow libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions showcase their collections through these free, downloadable coloring books. About a hundred new books are gathered at for your continued enjoyment any time during the year. Previous years are also available, almost 800 coloring books in all! Please continue to use the hashtag #ColorOurCollections to show us your work.

This year, NYAM’s coloring book deals with Climate Change. The images showcase those animals, vegetation, and natural regions that are most vulnerable.

Below we’ve selected a few of the images that you’ll find in this year’s edition.

Typis Montis… from Mundus Subterraneus by Athanasius Kircher (Amsterdam, 1665.)
Glacier of Zermatt from Physiography by Thomas Henry Huxley (London, 1905.)
Polar Bears and Seals from The Polar World by Georg Hartwig (London, 1869).
Branched Coral from The Universe by Félix-Archimède Pouchet (London, 1902)
Glaciers in the Bay of the Magdalen, Spitzbergen from The Universe by Félix-Archimède Pouchet
(London, 1902).
