I have always loved the vintage children's book illustrators of Miroslav Sasek. He was a Czech born illustrator who lived 1916 - 1980. His series of This Is books is especially charming and a great example of mid-century book illustrations.
I have several of these books listed in my store:
- This is Greece
- This is London
- This is Israel
