Miroslav Sasek

Miroslav Sasek

Upon researching for one of my projects for uni, for which I’m creating pieces based around travel, I (re-)discovered Miroslav Sasek and his wonderful children’s books about various cities and countries around the world. Prague-born Sasek worked as an Illustrator most of his life and starting in 1958 created these delightful books starting with “This is Paris”. His style on these books reminds of what I’m hoping to achieve through my use of gouache.

These books have recently been re-issued allowing an entire new generation to enjoy them!
