The Collectors is a new immersive digital story about the pursuit of knowledge and the compulsion to collect. The story traces the history of six collectors, from John Tradescant to Marie Stopes, whose curiosity drove them to accumulate objects and information, knowledge and notoriety, with some extraordinary consequences.

The Collectors is written by Anna Faherty, and uses an original interface created by Wellcome Collection in collaboration with award-winning digital agency Clearleft, as previously seen in Mindcraft. Scroll through a narrative woven together from rich historical content from Wellcome Library, image galleries and specially commissioned audio and animations.
