Finally, someone has made a coffee table book that will help you repress your memories of Leo’s, Village C, and the Heating and Cooling Plant, and convince dinner guests that you graduated from a school whose entire campus radiated beauty to boot.
Alum Leslie Little (COL ’86) is preparing to publish Georgetown Icons, a book of 100 photographs of Georgetown’s campuses commissioned by the University, to be released in 2011.
You can check out some of the photographs the book will feature here or in the video posted above, where College Dean Chester Gillis, backed up by music that reminds me of building a house for my Sims family, imparts his very high opinion of the book and lofty expectations for it.
“Georgetown Icons will capture the spirit and essence of Georgetown University and all of the campuses in their elegance and their historical perspective. This is a very special book. This is a book that will capture the heart and soul of Georgetown …. The book will be wildly successful, and much sought-after. It’s going to be a keepsake, it’s a piece that you will keep in your home and probably the kind of thing that you will pass onto your kids eventually.”
Pass it on to my kids? For $150, I’d better. But yes, while some of the photos are pretty routine, some are totally gorgeous. So children of alums, get out your wallets.
