Review quote

A dreamy, inspiring ode to the dreamy spires. -- Helen Fielding There's a feast within these pages, celebrating the great city of Oxford and the artists it inspires; open your eyes and rejoice. -- Miriam Margolyes Oxford may well be the most consciously beautiful city in Europe, and I get a daily kick out of wandering round its streets. It's a brilliant idea to let today's artists show us the grand sights - and the intimate ones as well. -- John Simpson What a nice idea, Oxford's so lovely, it makes me feel very nostalgic. -- Rick Stein Oxford is a victim of its beauty: the pavements crammed with bemused tourists, filthy buses jamming the streets. But the artists behind these images have not been deterred: this is a treasury of new ways of seeing. -- Jeremy Paxman
