“I took the Mersey Minis to the reading group I run in Hoylake Cottage hospital. There are about ten in the group, all elderly and most can no longer hold a book or see to read; so for the last 2 weeks I have read from the Minis. I can't tell you how much they have enjoyed it. We had lots of laughs and shared so many memories and everyone had a thoroughly good time.”
-- Dr Angela Macmillan
“Bursting with brilliant writing inspired by Liverpool and the River Mersey, the Mersey Minis are a great way to read about Liverpool, whether you live here or know someone who'd love one, far away – a lovely pressie.”
"The research in unearthing so many quotable quotes about Liverpool has been phenomenal."
-- Peter Elson, Liverpool Daily Post
"I was really impressed with the 'Mersey Minis' book..... it is a gem. It's quirky, charming and 'unputdownable'. The woodcuts by Clare Curtis compliment the book so well and give a sense of atmosphere and life to the text."
-- Tom Muir, Orkney Boat Museum
"I was given your Vol I for a birthday present... the book is very handy for carrying around. I was at a really boring event the other night and was able to read it surreptitiously."
-- Stephen Guy, local historian
"Mersey Minis presents Liverpool in miniature. A wonderful composite of the city - lovely to hold, and a delight to read."
-- Margaret Murphy, crime novelist
"What a very stylish - and eminently ransackable - collection!"
-- Charles Nevin, journalist
"A wonderful idea and great choice of texts!"
-- Christoph Grunenberg, director, Tate Liverpool
"A beautifully produced and fascinating book."
-- Loyd Grossman
