The most visually inventive magazine of the early ‘80s.
Nick Kimberley - CITY LIMITS, 1985

My first taste of CIPHER, and i’m left with the feeling of being well and truly assaulted. Books, within books, within books; it’s the only way I can describe the layout used here. And enthusiasm. So much enthusiasm that the damn thing throws itself at you, and not I might add at your feet. Small press at its most hardest and fastest. Catch it, it’s worth it.
Chuck Connor - IDOMO, 1982
In its own modest way it is a complete thesis against all existing magazines'
Mog Johnstone - CITY LIMITS, 1982
Cipher magazine number 6 features the same delicious mixture of witty design, graphics, pics, poetry and prose that its fans have come to expect. This issue upholds the usual high standard of experimental work,..Words can’t convey the dazzle and fizz of the design; you’ll have to have a look for yourselfs.
Michéle Roberts - CITY LIMITS, 1981
