This is New York.

This is New York. By Miroslav Sasek, illustrations by Miroslav Sasek. Re-issued 2008 by Universe. 64pp, numerous colour illustrations, 32.5 x 21.6 x 1.3 cm.

I found this wonderful book over at Book By Its Cover - and as I am also feeling pride in New York and the US at the moment it felt appropriate.

I am ashamed to say I had never heard of this Czech artist, illustrator and author or the "This is"-series of (children's) books.

This will be rectified as I'm planning on having a peek in several of the "This is"-books as soon as possible (and hopefully make purchases!)

To learn more about Miroslav Sasek and the books go here.
