Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yesterday we invited students to take a break from their exam revision and come along to a relaxing colouring book session at King’s Buildings.

There was the opportunity to colour-in brand new student illustrations inspired by items and images from the University’s collections. There was the choice of individual A4 pictures or larger A1 collaborative pieces.

The event was run in partnership with WellComm at King’s who kindly provided on-site support and advice.

This brand new openly licensed resource was created by University of Edinburgh students and staff for everyone to enjoy. There are 19 high-resolution illustrations contained within the book, but many more images published to our dedicated Flickr album.

You can download a PDF version of the book now or pick a free physical copy at the Main Library very soon.
