OxShot #5 - The View from the Bodleian Library

Opposite last week's Aslan Door, across Radcliffe Square, is the old Bodleian Library. In the Upper Reading Room many of Oxford's most renowned writers line the shelves.

"Oxshot" is our brand new snapshot series. Every Monday, get a glimpse of the city's literary life, and be reminded of its astonishing cultural richness. One take, for your double-take.
