“We Have Great Stuff” Colouring Book – Volume Two

A second edition of the popular ‘We Have Great Stuff’ colouring book has been launched. This 36-page student publication is centred around the theme of a Treasure Map that explores treasures found around the University of Edinburgh.

Created and curated by English Language and Literature student Marta Bloch Christiansen, the drawings are based on either architectural details found at different University buildings or images of artefacts held in the Centre for Research Collections.

7,000 printed copies are available for free from the Main Library, Wellbeing Lounge at Bristo Square, Argyle House and halls of residence (O’Shea and Pollock Halls).

Technical support and creative guidance were provided by Stewart Lamb Cromar and the Interactive Content team within Learning, Teaching and Web Services at ISG.

As a literature student and a booklover, I find there’s something so pleasing and enjoyable in holding a book; feeling the weight and the materiality of it.
