Following his books on the world's most beautiful libraries and opera houses, photographer Guillaume de Laubier now turns his lens toward an even more universal aspect of world heritage. This survey is a tour of 20 hallowed halls of higher learning, from the University of Bologna—the Western world's first university, founded in 1088—to the Sorbonne in France, plus Cambridge, Yale, and the University of Virginia. Sumptuous photographs showcase amphitheaters, libraries, reception halls, and hidden gardens, while the text describes the history of each campus, its architecture, research disciplines, and reference collections.
