This is series by M. Sasek

The public library I currently work at just added this awesome series from the late 50s and early 60s. The This is series focuses on different famous cities and countries with beautiful vintage illustrations created by Sasek. 

Originally born in Czechoslovakia, Sasek studied to become an architect before following his dream of becoming a painter. The destinations in the This is series depict the major locations, but also the quaint streets and people that modern day books forget. Originally printed in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the timeless illustrations still hold up beautifully and help capture the essence of every city and county.

Be sure to check out these new additions! This series is definitely one that the whole family will fall in love with.
