Book of the year 1998

Choosing Fragments of utopia as his the book of the year, the poet and editor Alan Ross wrote: ‘this is an exhilarating book of photo-montages, mainly on the subject of architecture, but with dazzling juxtaposed images using postcards, stamps, pin-ups, aeroplanes, sailors and footballers.’ This was in the refreshingly straightforward magazine The Oldie (something like the old Punch): maybe an appropriate forum in the year of David Wild’s sixtieth birthday.
