Classic Colouring – Trenton Public Library

classic colouringClassic Colouring from the Trenton Public Library is a collection of beautiful intricate public domain images, for relaxing colouring for older children and young adults.

A game, a pastime, an anti-stress remedy. It seems difficult that an ancient book could also have these characteristics, but we wanted to try.
We have selected a series of images from our ancient books to build a “coloring book”. Adults and children can exercise their creativity by coloring images drawn over the centuries and kept in the precious books of the library’s collections. You can download the entire album at www.issuu.com/bibtn and have fun coloring!

Curated by Milena Bassoli Photographs by Luciano Palombi
