The Carolina Book


Flyleaf Books offers final stock of the last available printing of Carolina. Our remaining copies have a manufacturing defect that may cause the cover to crease or tear near the spine of the book. These copies are available as-is for $100.00 (originally sold for $200.00) and are non-returnable.

We have found a repair solution using high-grade book binding tape. We are happy to apply the tape preemptively to your copy of Carolina (feel free to request this in your order comments). Photos of the defect and the same book after the repair are below. We feel this repair does not take away from the beauty of the book. We are happy to send high resolution photos if you would like to inspect more closely - just email us at

Across more than 450 pages, Carolina showcases America’s first institution of public higher education, one of the nation’s most beautiful, esteemed campuses.

Bound in Carolina-blue "basketball" rubber, with a gray cloth slipcase, Carolina considers classic views of the University, hand-selected from the archives, and simultaneously offers new, contemporary vantage points of “the University of the people” to capture UNC's unique campus spirit in a stunning work of art.

Carolina is a celebration of the experience that transcends generations of Tar Heels. It visually chronicles the physical journey to Chapel Hill — the approach from surrounding rural areas, the arrival to the quaint and energetic Franklin Street, and the entrance onto the iconic campus — and the emotional and intellectual journey that students take once on campus — from the thrill of moving into a dorm room in 100-degree heat to transformative classroom experiences, from the excitement of a win against Duke at the Dean Dome to reflective moments in Kenan Stadium during commencement.

Like taking a sip from the Old Well on the first day of classes, basking in the Carolina moonlight of a crisp October night, or rushing Franklin Street after a national championship win, Carolina is sure to captivate the heart and stir the soul of any Tar Heel.
