The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make the book a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember it from their childhood. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a This Is Edinburgh Today page at the back of the book. Scotland, with its unique character and tradition, provides material galore for M. Sasek, who is wonderfully and wittily at home in the world of kilt and tartan, pipes and pipers, whisky and haggis. In this happy and entertaining guide to Scotland's great capital, first published in 1961 and now updated for the twenty-first century, he has once again captured the very spirit and the pride and grandeur of one of the noblest places on earth. All the famous landmarks of this festival city are here-Princes Street, St. Giles' Cathedral, and the nearby Forth Bridge, and we can walk along the Royal Mile from the famous Castle to Holyrood Palace. Children and adults alike will find enchantment in this lovely book, and Scotsmen the world over will surely agree that This Is Edinburgh.
