THIS IS THE WORLD

Celebrating All of Sasek's This Is Series


For 6 weeks, the kids room at Type Books on Queen Street has been taken over by the glorious and much loved Miroslav Šašek's This Is... series. The first of the books, This Is Paris appeared in 1959, starting what ultimately grew into a series of eighteen books. Each one explored the architecture, landmarks, music, food, and people of places like Texas, Hong Kong, Munich, and even the moon. 

This fall, more than 50 years after the first book was released, Rizzoli has created a heavy and beautiful new edition: This Is The World  including abridged versions of Sasek's ode to his favourite places.
