  1. John Fox

    A glittering bombardment of fabulous full colour photos and hands on very nuts and bolts documentation of 15 years of massive collaborative work.

  2. Bill Gee

    I want to say a huge well done for Fireworking which is such a wonderful, personal, idiosyncratic yet seeming comprehensive overview of the World Famous years. It’s brilliant that you kept at it and produced such a great result at the end of the process.

    Of course I was in tears by the first page – and I’m sure I’m not the only one! Phew! Gulp! and more than a little bit of Dammit! But mostly Pride! And especially pride in you. I’ll be carting mine around under my arm for some time – to flash at the previously bewildered, and to wave at prospective employers. Several days into my Fireworking book ownership and I’m even more impressed. ‘m reading and re reading.And if other people can’t smell the gunpowder and feel the rush, not to mention the surging emotions, then maybe there is a hole in their souls!

    I’d only got about three pages in & had grinned, laughed then burst into tears as so many great memories flooded back… am loving the book for itself as a fabulous document of amazing times, work and people as well as the flashbacks to the beauty, smell & emotion of the stuff. The cat also likes sitting on it!

  5. Una Palliser

    Yes yes yes it arrived, absolutely love it, what a great piece of work.

  6. Heike Irion

    Oh, what a joy to read everybody’s words and perspective, what a well-rounded memoir this has become. The artistic, the practical, the personal, the societal, the academic, it’s all there. So many voices. So many beautiful pages. I shall henceforth browse with a twinkle and some peepee in my eye, show it proudly and recommend it like crazy.

  7. Stuart Gilmour

    Really amazing stuff in there.

  8. Deb Mullins

    Saturday morning, collect parcel, open it, look at first-page dedication, cry. Outside the post office. Thanks bastards. Apart from that it all looks and reads amazing/ly. You are very creative and talented people.

    I have just this moment opened the parcel. It looks fabulous,and on the first page is a picture of the Zoque which I remember taking one balmy evening. Look forward to browsing through it with a Mammoth supply of Malibu and pineapple.

  11. Rose Heywood

    We got the book today and it’s amazing, you should be very proud. I’ve only flicked through it but love it already and now Jonathan has nicked it, but I will look forward to looking at it in depth in due course…

    I am gobsmacked at every turn of your book… The brilliant audacity of everything you have done!
