Both a contemporary art collection and a guide to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, this book showcases the work of more than 50 local artists inspired by Cambridge's unique architecture and its historic university. Whether screen prints, digital art, or hand-cut collage, the images explore aspects of the city with a modern visual sensibility, while a map guides you to the places they depict. Through these artworks you'll wander cobbled streets and tranquil green spaces, visit the village of Grantchester, make a side trip to the cathedral of Ely, and discover the quirks that make Cambridge such a delight.
"How necessary and wonderful to see ancient and beautiful Cambridge singing with new life, colour and vitality through the works of contemporary artists. A book to treasure."—Stephen Fry
