Czech born Miroslav Sasek is well known for his wonderful This is... series, a series of 18 children's books that centered around famous cities of the world; depicting the culture, tourist hot-spots and transport modes. These children's travel guides were produced during 1959-1974. There are 2 books being re-issued this year, This is the way to the Moon (June '09) and This is Australia (September '09). They are just so timeless and charming, I especially love the way he has completely captured the feel of London and Britain's eccentricities.
