M. Sasek: THIS IS ROME

Author: M. Sasek

This is Rome, first published in 1960, traces the history of Roman civilization to bring to life the Rome of the 60's. Sasek navigates Rome's busy, winding streets to visit such glorious historical landmarks as the statues of Michelangelo, Vatican City, the Pantheon, and the Fontana di Trevi-and to show us the eccentricities of modern Roman life, from its colorful trains, trams, and taxis to its chic espresso bars and pasta houses.

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.
