|A unique combination of text, illustration and innovative format that explores some of the doors visible in the city of Oxford.
The text by Claire Lawson-Hall describes something of the history and purpose of the doors, whilst the profuse illustrations by Muriel Mallows combine lino cuts, line drawings, and etchings to make every page a rich visual and tactile experience.
|To focus on the nature of a door, the book is designed with asymmetric folded pages, with two spines, and with a double opening door as frontispiece.
