Charles Darwin by Quentin Blake, detail from Cambridge 800: An Informal Panorama, 2009

Cambridge University celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2009. To mark the occasion, beloved British illustrator Quentin Blake was asked to produce a frieze to commemorate some of the university's most notable alumni. This mug features a front and back print: on the front, the familiar bearded figure of the respected naturalist sits atop a Galapagos tortoise, lost in a good book, while on the back Darwin as a younger man gallops along on a giant beetle.
