Laser cut concertina book inspired by Glasgow University's campus.
This was a commission for Glasgow University in 2016, who were looking for a piece of book art (among other pieces of work) that reflected the look of the main campus. The brief required numerous building's from Glasgow's Gilmorehill campus to be incorporated in to the design of the book.
Featured buildings include:
- Glasgow University bell tower
- Hunterian Museum
- Glasgow University Library
- Wolfson Medical School building
- Boyd Orr
- MacMillan Reading Room
The University on the Hill is bound in the official blue, yellow and green tartan of Glasgow University. The book measures 20.5 x 12.5 x 2.5cm when folded up, and approximately 42cm when opened.
This would make a great gift for anyone with a connection to the university or to the west end of Glasgow. One copy available to purchase online!
