this is san francisco

I'm sure you've seen these books at one point or another when you've been in a bookstore, or even at Anthropologie where they sell them. Author and Illustrator M. Sasek (1916-1980), created these fun, beautiful, classic books on great cities of the world (Paris, New York, San Francisco). I fell in love with his illustrations and keep this one, This is San Francisco, on my coffee table to peruse from time to time. These books also make great gifts or house warming presents for people who live near, or in one of the cities, or for those who just love art!

  1. ...another thought. If you have a child and are moving to one of the cities mentioned in M. Sasek's books, reading it to them may be a great way to get your child excited about their new home!
