In it we promised some more photos from a recent acquisition – This is New York.
The book was published in 1960 and, as per usual, the illustrations are fabulous!
New York is one of those cities that works particularly well…
…with it’s distinctive buildings, day to day goings on and familiar characters.
The artist captures the 1950s/60s era – the sights and the vibrancy of the city.
We had a 10-day holiday there a few years ago. It had changed a bit since Sasek wrote these books but lots of the unmistakable landmarks and energy of the city were still there.
Flicking through these pages reminds us of the great time we had – hopefully we’ll get back there again one day…
…and it would be a real dream to cruise up the Hudson river to arrive in real style!
