Toby Neal reviewed "Portrait of Shrewsbury" in the Shropshire Star on Saturday, 17th August 2013, and had this to say about it:
"It is strange but true, but you can live in a town or visit it often, but not really see anything
All around is so familiar that you never bother to look and end up not noticing anything at all. And so it is that wonderful architectural and historic gems can becme hidden in plain sight, and you need someone to shine the spotlight on them and give you a nudge to make you realise what's there.
This book is just such a nudge. It is a showcase of Shrewsbury's treasures, all those places and features which make up the town's unique mix of medieval and modern.
Jukes-Hughes has already made a name for himself with his previous book "Portrait of the Shropshire Hills", and now he brings his photographic talents to bear on Shrewsbury in this book, produced in partnership with Stan Sedman, who is an official town guide.
The result of his efforts were an eye-opener for me. Here are lots of Shrewsbury buildings and features that I have seen but not perceived. It is like a photographic voyage of rediscovery. It is a quality publication. And if there are Salopians out there who think they have seen it all, believe me, you haven't."
The book also received a glowing review in the December 2013 issue of Shropshire Magazine.
