All about M. Sasek
I recently discovered the charming and vivacious work of Miroslav Sasek - a Czech artist, illustrator and author of an iconic series of picture books called "This is."
It all started with This Is Paris, published in 1958, which takes readers through the sights and sounds of belle Paris. Sasek went on to create eighteen more picture books featuring the world's greatest cities including London, New York, Hong Kong, et al.
The books have been reissued in the past few years, and I just received my own copy of This is Paris and I am pleased as punch!
