Book Friday: M. Sasek Classics

Posted by

ThisIsIreland_COVER

I adore these childhood classics by M. Sasek. His books are a wonderful way to expose children to the history and culture of other countries. Not to mention that from a design standpoint, I have always been obsessed with the mid-century illustrations. The first in his "This Is..." series was This is Paris, but I thought This is Ireland would be a more appropriate book for today, since St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow. The full series is available for purchase at rizzoliusa.com—click through all of the titles below.
