Visitors to Caius will find it easier to find their way round the College thanks to a new hand-drawn pictorial map of the Old Courts and the West Road site. The detailed 3D drawing has been produced by Cambridge-based artist Jeremy Bays, whose hand-coloured maps and designs - small works of art in their own right - have illuminated the prospectuses and websites of numerous Colleges and schools since he launched his studio, Art-Work-Shop, in 1979.
Jeremy's portfolio of work, which combines the technical detail of graphic design with the warmth of an artist's eye and colouring technique, also includes pictorial maps of York Minster and the Household Cavalry Museum. The Caius maps were created after a number of site visits and photography sessions. In search of pictorial accuracy, Jeremy could be found leaning with his camera from one of the side windows of Caius Library in an effort to to confirm the number of windows on the garden side of the Master's Lodge.
The Caius map collection now also includes another map drawn by Jeremy, this time showing the location of Caius in relation to University sites and other key sites within Cambridge. A third addition shows the cycle and pedestrian route between the Old Courts and Caius' West Road site. All the maps can be found together in the Visiting Caius section of this website, under the heading Discover in the top menu.
