1 y separately published work icon Rearview Mirror Anthony London , Howard Birnstihl (illustrator), West Melbourne : Spikeback Books , 2017 14214900 2017 selected work poetry

'School mates reunited after forty years, each having spent the intervening time interpreting the world around them - Howard with his low key, whimsical eye, Tony in meticulously selected words, both acute observers of life and its many foibles. Sometimes echoing the other's thoughts, sometimes fiercely independent, both authors display a unique and distinct view, inviting us to share their vision.

'Unlike the modern tendency to shock and amaze, the photographs work quietly on the viewer, beckoning us to be a silent witness to a world we have been part of as they hark back to recent decades of Life in Australia. How things have changed, but how much they have stayed the same.

'London's poems likewise, have that uncanny knack of pinpointing those many thoughts we have but perhaps can never express.'
