'A cacophony of the covetable, weird and wonderful ... decidedly hard to put down' - Field
'Its numerous colour photographs are of such astonishingly high quality as to take my breath away ... most handsomely presented and sumptuously bound ... it is all strikingly pleasing to the eye' - Fortean Times
