Color Our Collections: Margaret Armstrong Edition

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

We're sharing our illustrated collections online this week as part of #ColorOurCollections! We've made one coloring book for you to enjoy at home or in the Library, based on book covers from our current exhibit The Book Beautiful: Margaret Armstrong & Her Bindings. Armstrong’s bindings are truly works of art, and now you too can decorate (and design!) some intricate and colorful book covers. Grab some markers, crayons, and colored pencils and let Armstrong’s art nouveau designs spark your creativity. Fun for kids and adults, we hope this downloadable coloring book inspires you to interact with our collections.

If you run through these pages, we also have two other coloring books from past #ColorOurCollections campaigns.

And don’t forget to come in to the Library to view this exhibit, open to the public in the Peluso Family Exhibition Gallery. You can read more about Margaret Armstrong and her family from our past blog posts:
