A personal look at the buildings that define Yale University through the eyes of alumni. “The Stones of Yale is a delight—fresh and highly observant. I will be turning to its pages again and again, I have no doubt.”—David McCullough

Artist Adam Van Doren wanted to know how Yale University’s buildings made people feel to live and to study in them. He spoke to alumni as diverse as actor Sam Waterston, the writer Christopher Buckley, Yale librarian Judith Schiff, former NFL great Calvin Hill, architect Cesar Pelli, among others, about their experiences and illustrates this book in gorgeous watercolor paintings of the buildings of Yale that interest him most.

Rather than an architectural analysis of buildings, Van Doren explores the visceral experience of seeing them and being inside them. This is one-of-a-kind approach that will interest anyone who’s felt the intangible power of a building and a place.
