Reviews

  • 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
  • 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
  • A glorious and delightful compendium and guide to London from Above, Below and all the in-betweens

    Neil Gaiman
  • 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 great walk for the senses

    Iain Sinclair
  • Utterly extraordinary

    Tom Holland
