Harvard Library Pigment Library

© President and Fellows of Harvard College


I just learned about this amazing pigment collection at Harvard!  Guess a road trip is in order to see this rare collection of around 2500 different pieces. There are a lot of colors that I don't even know what they are; "Quercitron" (a yellow dye from black oak), or "Cochineal" (which comes from squished beetles - for real).
