Essays on architecture, beautifully illustrated with the author's own photographs and drawings. John Melvin, one of the UK's most experienced architects and town planners, reflects on the nature of tradition and the role of memory in the renewal of our cities. With a profound understanding of the history of architecture and an acute ear for architecture's emotional resonances, he focuses many of his illustrated essays on Oxford but their lessons could be equally applied to any town proud of its past.
