Herbal illustrator

Good morning! Today’s coloring pages come from our rare books collection. First up is a page from Otto Brunfel’s Herbal from 1532. Brunfel was one of the three “founders of botany.” Many early herbals were printed with engravings that were meant to be hand-colored later. Now you can be an herbal illustrator!
