In over 150 watercolour paintings and pencil sketches, Graham Byfield takes us on a tour of Oxford's historic landmarks, celebrated colleges and beautiful landscapes.
But he also takes time to reveal some of the architectural treasures in little-known back streets and hidden cloisters.
This is a book that captures the character of Oxford which charms millions each year, but is often lost in their snapshots and postcards.
Illustrated throughout with superb watercolours printed on textured paper, Roger White's captions reveal the author's passion for Oxford, resulting in a sketchbook that offers an idiosyncratic and vibrant account of the city and its fascinating history.
This book is the latest in the popular Sketchbook series, also distributed by Thames & Hudson, that includes Paris Sketchbook, London Sketchbook, Singapore Sketchbook, Thailand Sketchbook, The Loire Valley Sketchbook and Venice Sketchbook.
