Praise for Oxford College Arms
"A monumental piece of work filled with fascination. The wise will read it with real pleasure and a sense of nostalgia will add to the enjoyment." - Lady Celia Goodhart (former Principal, Queen's College, Harley Street and Visitor to Oxford University).
"The book is a delight. John has taken recent images to journalistically nail his theme." - Richard Lofthouse, Oxford Alumni Books, QUAD, September 2018.
"This fascinating and beautifully presented book should be essential reading for all who know and love Oxford." Michael G. Cunningham, Executive Director, University of Oxford North American Office.
"The book looks very handsome indeed, and the illustrations are beautiful. I am sure it will answer many people's questions about the significance of the various heraldic devices, and how this relates to the history of the colleges." Clare Hopkins, Archivist, Trinity College, Oxford.
"This well researched book is a work of reference and most enjoyable to browse." - Ian Senior, former chairman, Trinity College Oxford Society.
"An essential vade mecum for all interested in Oxford University and its Colleges and their fascinating heraldic language of branding." - Paul Christopher Walton (Brasenose, Oxford), Oxford Historian and Branding Strategist.
"I didn't go to Oxford, and the book was an eye-opener about the colleges' diversity. The insider tour has prompted us to add Oxford to our next UK visit." - John Jaxheimer, New York City Publisher.
