People love The City Through The Eyes of Its Artist series as they not only captures the familiar and famous landmarks, but also the unfamiliar and quirky.

If you live in or around Manchester or have been inspired by this fantastic city, you will know the landmarks, buildings, sites and green spaces, but here are just a few examples below. Pictures of the outskirts are welcome too, we never quite know how far out the book will go until we start the process. We love images which have people in them, or show change, or anything which shows what really goes on in a city.
