The University of Illinois
The artistry and atmosphere of the U. of I. campus
Illini Loyalty captures the indelible events, beloved buildings, and human drama that define an iconic American university. A proud University of Illinois alum, Larry Kanfer presents the campus and its community as only he can. His artist's eye reveals the expansive vistas and intimate details that make the university an unforgettable place for tens of thousands of students and alumni each year. Alaina Kanfer's insightful words provide the stories behind landmarks like Lorado Taft's Alma Mater sculpture and the Altgeld Hall bell tower while highlighting new classics like the Siebel Center for Computer Science and the ACES Library. Throughout, the Kanfers also commemorate notable university figures and celebrate Homecoming, graduation, Quad Day, and the other traditions on the campus calendar.
A must-have for students, graduates, parents, and fans, Illini Loyalty conveys the University of Illinois's spirit of education, innovation, and pride.
"Kanfer has photographed the U of I campus for more than thirty years, artfully capturing its beauty throughout the seasons. Illini Loyalty pairs his evocative photos with Alaina Kanfer's richly detailed text blocks, which provide historical perspective."--LifeTimes
"For more than thirty years I have photographed the University of Illinois through a lens of love and analytical observation. This collection is my attempt at communicating the incredible richness the university adds to the lives of students, alumni, faculty, staff, townies, and visitors; its tradition of greatness; and its promise for the future. By focusing on the grand icons, notables associated with the University of Illinois, and everyday details that are easy to overlook, I hope this book reveals the labor, learning, and loyalty that are the Illini experience."--from the preface by Larry Kanfer
