Fine art photography of the Perne Library, Peterhouse Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. One of the gems of Cambridge, the Perne Library is preserved in its near original condition since it was built in the 1590s. It’s one of the older libraries in town and is occasionally open for private events and tours. The flanges at the base of each bookcase are of particular interest – similar flanges are in other libraries (at King’s and at Caius). Photos from this library were shortlisted for the Int’l Photo Awards.

This photographic collection of the Perne Library at Peterhouse Cambridge was photographed in 2017 and contains 60 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.

Created and presented with thanks to the librarians and by kind permission of the Master and Fellows of the College. Click here to learn more about the library.
