The Cambridge Art Book showcases the city of Cambridge through the eyes of its artists. Over 120 pages of vibrant contemporary images, 51 artists who have all been inspired by this incredible city, show Cambridge in a new and exciting way.

A map within the book will allow people to see the images on the page and then visit the building or place for themselves to see how the artists has interpreted them.

The book has been created by local collage artist Emma Bennett. (www.emmabennettcollage.co.uk).  Emma has lived in Cambridge for 12 years where she works as a commercial artist constantly inspired by the incredible city.

The book was published on July 18th (2017) by UIT/Green Books

The images for the book were chosen by a panel of art and city experts, please see below for further details.








Our incredibly tallented Art Panel had the difficult (but very enjoyable job) of choosing over 100 images for the book, from a selection of over 300 submitted.
