Our Heroic Bodies - colouring-in for all

This collection of drawings celebrates the unexpected beauty of our body at a tiny scale, starting with blood cells, including our protective heroic white blood cells, and some of the bacteria and viruses that can make us unwell. The collection includes celebrating how an unexpected finding by Edward Jenner in 1798 led to one of the greatest discoveries in medicine to help protect us from illness.
