This is London

Sasek caputures the vibrant culture of London in this classic children's picture book.

Sasek's quirky illustrations capture everything from the London Buses and the Houses of Parliament to the markets and pubs.

'And at the end of your picture of London there should

come a mention for that faithful friend, your umbrella!

Because this is London!'

The sense of humour keeps this book from being anything but dull as do Sasek's illustrations which now have a valid retro feel to them.  Sasek covers London in detail, pointing out the obvious and not so obvious, and it's these intelligent observations which keep it interesting.  This is a great one for those who devour non fiction and enjoy discovering new places.

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
Following on the runaway success of "This is New York," Universe is thrilled to reissue two more titles from M. Sasek's beloved children's travel series: "This is London" and "This is Paris."
Like "This is New York" and "This is San Francisco," "This is London" and "This is Paris" are facsimile editions of Sasek's original titles. His brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved and remain true to his vision. With the passing of time facts have been updated where applicable in the back of each book. Perfect souvenirs with timely and nostalgic appeal, the books have an elegant, classic look and delightful narrative that will charm both children and their parents, many of whom will remember them from their own childhood.
"This is London," first published in 1959, presents impressions of London with its beautiful buildings, historic monuments, bridges, parks, shops and Piccadilly Circus, black cabs, Horse Guards, and famed Underground.
