Format: Hardcover
My elementary school library had seven of M. Sasek's "This Is" books. They were simply magical to me as a child. I used to always have at least one checked out. I believe I set a record for most consecutive weeks of having a single book checked out with "This Is Washington DC". I have since collected 17 of the 18 "This Is" books as an adult. They are still magical. The books portray an optimism that is missing in today's world. Sasek's beautiful artwork is bright and cheery. Anyone who is a fan of Mary Blair and her style of art would love Sasek's artwork. The books are just as enjoyable for adults as well as children. There is a ton of tongue-in-cheek humor that I never got as a child. The books are sure to strike the spirit of adventure for any youngster. I am looking forward to reading these books to my child when he gets old enough.
The amazing thing about "This Is New York" is that it still captures the spirit and vitality of New York today. It would make an excellent addition to any book collection, child or adult.

These books by Miroslav Sasek were possibly my most beloved books as a child. I am thrilled that 2 of the series are being reprinted. His illustrations are charming and timeless. I used to pour over these books wondering what these cities would be like. I'm hoping that This is Paris and This is London will follow.

Poor Job of Printing Oct. 15 2007
By D. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Great book but a poor job of printing/scanning ("Printed in China"). My copy just arrived and all the images look washed-out, with blurry grays where there should be blacks. The copy I saw at the Tenement Museum bookstore in New York did not look like this. Very disappointing. Same for my copy of "This Is San Francisco" that was also part of this order. Bleh.

Great Illustrations of NY Aug. 1 2005
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a nice picture book for young children who love NY or for someone who loves NY to read to someone who doesn't know much about it.

REPRINT SASEK, PLEASE! Nov. 26 1999
By elan fleisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sasek's classic works belong in bookstores right next to Tintin and Madeline and Babar. They are as informative as entertaining for children, and adults. I notice that Amazon lists quite a few Sasek titles: missing is This Is Venice and This is Texas. Anyone notice any other missing titles?
