Good Find.

I stumbled across these incredible books in one of my favourite shops and adored everyone that I picked up - which was all of them. This is all because of a man by the name of M. Sasek.
M.Sasek worked as a painter and illustrator for most of his life. Starting with This is Paris published in 1958, the books he wrote painted a delightful and evocative picture of some of the world's great cities and countries!- Everything from New York, to Ireland and even Australia. Pick up a book if you can, as he'll take you on an adventure to the cities you've always wanted to go to.


  1. I adore these books. They have a set of 4 of them at the elementary school that I teach at here in Japan. I used "this is new york" for storytime in one of my 6th grade classes, and the students really enjoyed the artwork :)

  2. Isn't he great? We have New York but my goal is to have them all.
