You might not be familiar with the name Miroslav Sasek, but we're pretty sure that you'll know his beautiful work. Between the late 1950s and early 1970s Sasek created the beloved 'This is...' series of illustrated children's books, which introduced young eyes to the wonders of some of the world's most well known cities. Almost 40 years after his death, Sasek finally gets his own richly illustrated biography, which tells his life's tale through his drawings and photographs.
This biography takes a scrapbook format, with plentiful images and illustrations underpinning the story of his life from early beginnings to later work. A beautiful and charming collection which will have a have nostalgic resonance for anyone who ever read his wonderful books.
