"A beautifully produced concertina book that folds out into a 139cm panorama detailing the history and mythology of flight, has provided endless inspiration for questions and stories from all three of my children."
—Telegraph

"We liked the bold stylish retro look of the fold-out book, which pays homage to the bold patterns and geometry of early Russian constructivism, along with a nod to mid-century French commercial art. Another fantastic edition by the talented Nobrow clan."
—Easy Voyage

"High Times is an exquisitely designed and printed concertina book which folds out to a spectacular 4.5 foot panorama… It is a fantastic education tool as well as a dazzling work of art that can be enjoyed and savored by the entire family."
