Care to break out your crayons and add some color to some historic prints? The Folger Shakespeare Library is asking you to Color their Collections.

From the Folger Shakespeare Library, the world’s largest Shakespeare collection, comes this call to create:

#ColorOurCollections is a week-long social media event during which libraries and archives from around the world share images from their collections and encourage you to color them in and make them your own. We’ve pulled all kinds of images from our collection here at the Folger, mixing 16th-century woodcuts with illustrations from Shakespeare’s plays.

From February 5 – 9 , 2018, download and color any of the images we have provided here and share them with us on Twitter or Instagram @FolgerLibrary using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. Be sure to follow us so you don’t miss out on everyone else’s work. We can’t wait to see your creativity and vibrant interpretations of our collection!

Find an image to color for today’s DDA.

Tweet your response to @netnarr and be sure to include the hashtag #dda255 (as well as #ColorOurCollections and @FolgerLibrary)
