The Oxford Art Book showcases one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Inspired by Oxford’s unique architecture and historic university, over 50 artists have produced a unique collection of contemporary images illustrating all aspects of the city and surrounding area. The city is shown in a new light through a range of media, from screen print and computer aided design to hand-cut collage.

Artists' credits


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

A dreamy, inspiring ode to the dreamy spires.

- Helen Fielding

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

What a nice idea, Oxford's so lovely, it makes me feel very nostalgic.

- Rick Stein

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

Emma Bennett’s fascination with design and recycling leads to beautiful collages, as in the cover of this lovely book.
