Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Aug 20, 2009 - Art - 72 pages
Celebrated artist and illustrator Ian Sheldon gathers his watercolour paintings of the historical architecture of Cambridge to produce a visual journey through time. Appearing in the University's 800th anniversary year, his book contains fifty-one images depicting two walks from the north (Girton College) and south (Homerton College) into central Cambridge. The contents page guides the reader along the chosen routes, showing a map of Cambridge with numbered points as a key to specific images. Each painting is accompanied by a descriptive caption. There is a Foreword by Duncan Robinson, Master of Magdalene and formerly Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum. Cambridge Footsteps is an ideal colour souvenir of Cambridge, a gift item that evokes the beauty and historical richness of the University, the colleges and their surroundings.
