The Oxford Project

I troll for books. Shiny? Poignant? Ridiculously expensive? I'm interested. My coffee table is covered with books like Sibella Court's Etc., The Selby is in My Place and Love Hotels. This book is a welcome addition to that stack.

In 1984 Peter Feldstein photographed all but six of the residents of Oxford, Iowa. Twenty years later he did it again.

In a page or a paragraph and a picture, you find a story: love stories, tales of misspent youth, long held regrets and small but significant victories.

It is a beautiful, simple book.
