Universe This is Hong Kong

Following on the runaway success of This is New York, Universe is thrilled to reissue two more titles from M. Saseks beloved childrens travel series: This is London and This is Paris. Like This is New York and This is San Francisco, This is... London and This is Paris are facsimile editions of Saseks original titles. His brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved and remain true to his vision. With the passing of time facts have been updated where applicable in the back of each book. Perfect souvenirs with timely and nostalgic appeal, the books have an elegant, classic look and delightful narrative that will charm both children and their parents, many of whom will remember them from their own childhood. This is London, first published in 1959, presents impressions of London with its beautiful buildings, historic monuments, bridges, parks, shops and Piccadilly Circus, black cabs, Horse Guards, and famed Underground. This is Paris, first published in 1959, brings Paris, one of the most exciting cities in the world, to life. There are famous buildings, beautiful gardens, cafés, and the Parisians-artists, concierges, flower girls, and even thousands of cats. Take a tour along the banks of the Seine, through the galleries of the Louvre, and to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

This is Rome, first published in 1960, traces the history of Roman civilization to bring to life the Rome of the 60s. Sasek navigates Romes busy, winding streets to visit such glorious historical landmarks as the statues of Michelangelo, Vatican City, the Pantheon, and the Fontana di Trevi-and to show us the eccentricities of modern Roman life, from its colorful trains, trams, and taxis to its chic espresso bars and pasta houses.

In This is the Way to the Moon, first published in 1963, Sasek rockets readers to Cape Canaveral?the space capital of the world, a science-fiction-turned-fact spot on the Florida coast?with a nostalgic look at the electronic brains that put our man up into space and brought him down again. Also included are the updated statistics about the lunar landing and a mini history of NASA?s space program.
