This is...

This is...

"This is..." is a series of children's travel books written and illustrated by Czech author Miroslav Sasek between 1959 and 1974.

Sasek originally intended to write three books: "This is Paris", "This is London", and "This is Rome". Because of those titles' popularity, Sasek ultimately extended the series to 18 books.

Four of the "This is" books were adapted into movies in the early 1960s: "This is New York", "This is Venice", "This is Israel", and "This is Ireland".

The "This is" series went out of print. In 2003, publisher Rizzoli began reissuing some of the titles, although not in the original publication order. So far eight titles have been reprinted, with two more scheduled to be reissued in January, 2007.
