Review quote

'coaxes the reader into retraining their visual perspective.' The Independent, 7 November 2006 'reads like the scrapbook of someone with too many good ideas. - These images [ - ] have an effortless charm and wit all of their own.' Sunday Telegraph, 12 November 2006 'a colourful and pretty book - page after page of eye-catching and quizzing visual games, doodles, graphic objects, sketches and quotations. - Fletcher['s] wit and skill at turning words into pictures make this an interesting and challenging book to read.' 10 magazine, December 2006 'Charming - never has the doodle been more delightful.' Artists and Illustrators, February 2007 'comprehensively and beautifully illustrated' Grand Design, January 2007
