Let the rumbling cable car tell you the story! And what a story: From the crookedest street in the world to the Peking ducks in Chinatown, San Francisco is easily one of the world's most enchanting cities.

Illustrator Miroslav Sasek captures both the breathtaking landscape and the cosmopolitan flavor of the City by the Bay in This is San Francisco.

First published in 1962, Sasek's jaunty, colorful illustrations will still dazzle kids and adults alike.

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.
