Ian Sheldon is proud to announce the publication of this exceptional volume of watercolours printed in hardcover by Cambridge University Press in August 2009.
Representing a selection of paintings from the past ten years, this is a visual arts feast printed to help celebrate the University’s 800th anniversary as well as the University Press’s 425th anniversary. Cambridge boasts a historic campus. This grand setting is captured through the detailed art in this book.
With 72 pages of scenes of every college in the University, as well as other significant scenes and buildings of the city, the book also includes Notes from the Artist. A Foreword was generously written by Duncan Robinson, Master of Magdalene College and the former Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
Available at University Bookstore in Cambridge as well as online, the book makes an ideal gift and memory of the city for students, academics, tourists and the like. It is an ideal souvenir of the beautiful architecture of the city and university.
The book retails for 15 pounds in the UK, and is available through the artist for $40 in Canada. Signed copies are available direct from the artist. Shipping is extra. The book is cloth bound with a page marker, and beautifully printed on crisp white paper.
Book design, typesetting and page layout for this lovely edition was done by Phil Treble for Cambridge University Press, with book production by Stephanie Thelwell and map illustrations by Tim Oliver.
