‘Pandæmonium was the biggest single inspiration for the Olympics Opening Ceremony … the book is the equivalent of Pepys giving you a guided tour of the birth of electricity and the mechanical age – it’s brilliant, exciting and essential.’ Danny Boyle
‘Stimulating to mind and imagination … a monument to one of the unique artists of our time, a visionary poet … you will be illuminated and enriched.’ Spectator
