We're happy to have the range of M.Sasek books back again after they sold out before Christmas.
Although intended as destination books for children, we know many adults who are happy to have these on their bookshelf because they perfectly capture the 50's/60's in a charming way.
Written and illustrated by Miroslav Sasek in the late 50's, these hardback books are a delight to read and use as a guide book with a child. The illustrations are good enough to frame and and the text is playful and witty.
We have "This is London", "This is Paris", "This is Edinburgh", "This is Great Britain", "This is New York" and "This is the Way to the Moon".
All the images below are from my favourite - "This is Paris", showing a Parisian bus stop, letter box, the Sacre Coeur with a nun and a street artist.
