With their Encyclopedia, or a Systematic Dictionary of the Sciences, Arts and Crafts, editors Denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond d’Alembert set out to map the scope of human knowledge. Published between 1751 and 1772, the encyclopedia’s 28 volumes tackled subjects from chemistry and philosophy to botany and bookbinding. The illustrations selected for this coloring book include animals, shells, insects, machinery, buildings, clocks, writing instruments, furniture—you get the picture. They hark from a dictionary of everything, after all.
