This is...

Have you seen Miroslav Sasek's "This is" books?  They're from the late 1950s to the 1970s and they're beautifully illustrated.  Since I discovered them I've been having a tour of the world from my own lounge!  These images  are from This is San Fransisco:

And these are from This is Australia:

Miroslav Sasek is an excellent tour guide, with a poetic way of observing things.  I wish he had done a This is New Zealand!

These retired buffalo are from This is Texas.

The series is described as being "for children of all ages, even adults!" 

 My next stop? This is Ireland.
