This is Edinburgh Hardback
Part of the This Is ... series
Following the runaway bestsellers This is New York and This is Paris, Universe is pleased to reissue another title from M.
Sasek's beloved and nostalgic children's travel series.
Like the other Sasek classics, This is Edinburgh is a facsimile edition of the original book that is still timely and current in every way.
The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make the book a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember it from their childhood.
The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is ...
Today" page at the back of the book. M. Sasek has captured the very spirit, pride, and grandeur of one of the noblest places on earth in This is Edinburgh, first published in 1961.
Sasek is right at home in Scotland, with its famous sights, unique character, and iconic traditions of kilt and tartan, pipes and pipers, whisky and haggis.

Review by heidialice
This is an illustrated children's picture book about the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. First released in 1961, it was re-released in 2006.A beautiful book, with a good introduction to the landmarks and unique sites of Edinburgh. What's striking is how little Edinburgh has changed in the intervening years. This is my first read in the "This is..." series, but I will be seeking out the others.
