The most ingenious, insightful, inspiring, intoxicating, and simply interesting guide to the great city that I have ever seen (Philip Pullman)
Remarkable ... a nerdy Londoner's paradise ... an exquisite 450-page cross between an encyclopaedia and an artwork (Evening Standard)
The greatest book about London published in modern times ... an illuminated manuscript for the 21st century city (Londonist)
London's bookshops and libraries are filled with printed guides to the city but few (if any) are as comprehensive as Curiocity (Creative Review)
Utterly extraordinary (Tom Holland)
An endlessly fascinating guide to London ... an eccentric lexical juggernaut ... I doubt that anything of such crazy magnitude will be attempted again in a hurry (Evening Standard)
Here is something different [...] composed of fresh flashes of insight [...] constructed as a cabinet of curiosities, the literary equivalent of Sir John Soane's Museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields. The work [the authors] have put into it is formidable, the collaboration they have won from contributors, illustrators and publishers quite breathtaking. (Times Literary Supplement)
The authors' delight in London trivia is infectious (Guardian)
A glorious treasure trove (Esquire)
A beautifully produced miscellany of fascinating facts about London. Wonderful illustrations are added to intriguing nuggets of information on a huge range of subjects from street cries to earthstars. An object of beauty in itself (The Oldie)
