This Is Miroslav Sasek

I recently came across Czech illustrator Miroslav Sasek‘s set of reissued children’s travel books and instantly fell in love. After publishing the first of his This Is… series in 1959, M. Sasek continued to capture the essence of worldly destinations like London, Israel, Munich, San Francisco and Hong Kong, with his delightfully notable midcentury style. How wonderful that over fifty years later, these books are still being appreciated by children and adults alike.
