For the launch of the Natural History Museum’s spectacular new Darwin Centre, Armadillo were delighted to produce a Turning the Pages Gallery version of a Herbarium, taken from the NHM’s archives. As the Darwin Centre is focused on research in to the diversity of life on Earth we, rather fittingly, produced a Turning the Pages in which the pages come to life! Have a look at the video below, or visit the book at the Darwin Centre if you are able, can you spot the living things on each spread?
As part of the Darwin celebrations around the anniversaries of his birth and the publication of On the Origin of Species we have made available a digital version of the Origin. It’s the copy owned by Wallace, Darwin’s collaborator in that work, and has his annotations on many pages. It’s available now in the NHM Darwin exhibition and online shortly.
