Review by

Beautfiul children's illustrated book, originally from the 1960s, the second of Miroslav's "This is" series about various cities. He draws the city's landmarks and attractions in his wonderful distinctive style. Each page has a brief amount of text explaining about the city's features, but the images work alone. Although it was originally a children's book, his work is now considered a cult classic and would be appreciated by adults with an interest in retro illustration or anyone who loves San Francisco.
