M. Sasek: THIS IS EDINBURGH

Author: M. Sasek

Sasek has captured the very spirit, pride, and grandeur of one of the noblest places on earth in This is Edinburgh, first published in 1961. He is right at home in Scotland, with its famous sights, unique character, and iconic traditions of kilt and tartan, pipes and pipers, whisky and haggis. As Sasek focuses on the small details like shops and individual streets, he seems to have picked things that have endured. It is a very Scottish book that seems to capture the essence of Edinburgh as it still is today. This is Edinburgh was one of Sasek's three favorite titles (along with This is Venice and This is Hong Kong).

This book is a reissue from Sasek's beloved and nostalgic children's travel series. Like the other Sasek classics, this is a facsimile edition of the original book from the 1960s that is still timely and current in every way. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to Sasek' vision more than 40 years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is...Today" page at the back of the book. The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, makes for a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember this book from their childhood.
