Miroslav Sasek

Miroslav Sasek's books make me happy. I own quite a few of his "This is... " collection of books, and they are just great to look at. You can go back to your childhood as you browse the pages or admire the artwork as a "grown up".

Miroslav won numerous awards in the late 50s and 60s for his illustrations, but more information about the artist has been difficult to uncover.

Take a look at some of his illustrations from various "This is... " books.

"This is Edinburgh"

"This is Paris"

"This is London"

"This is Ireland"
