The most democratic artistic intervention of my lifetime (Maev Kennedy Guardian)

London's most original contribution to urban civilisation (Simon Jenkins Evening Standard)

Beautifully presented ... This makes it an ideal book to dip into. Few people would see this book lying around the house and not be tempted to quickly browse through and find a morsel of verse that meant something to them at that moment. Everyone will find their own favourites in the book (A Common Reader)
