Oxford is a city that inspires, be it travelers from around the world who marvel at its architecture, or students huddled over great works in the Bodleian Library—not to mention the locals, who picnic by the river banks and paddle its canals in summer, then hunker down in its cozy pubs in winter. All of these things have prompted countless artists to portray the city, including the 65 local artists whose visions are collected here. Part tour book, part art book, this album offers their personal views of hidden doorways, bustling streets, punts on the river, lush greenhouses, and the glorious spires of Oxford's university and churches—and shows you how to find them yourself.
