"Of the many postwar photobooks on European citites, this is one of the best...Lisboa is particularly notable for using many of the book-making ideas developed by William Klein, and Dutch Photographers like Ed van der Elsken and Joan van der Keuken, and has a vibrant, cinematic feeling...the photographs of Palla and Martins are graphic and exuberant...Both as a photographic bookwork, and as a document of city life, it is considerably more than the sum of its parts"--Parr and Badger
