I've been a longtime fan of Czech illustrator Miroslav Sasek's children's travel books for many years. In fact, I've been growing a collection for our children, far before Luca was even born. Sasek captures the essence of worldly destinations such as Paris, London, San Francisco, Venice and Israel with his charming signature midcentry style. His first This is... series was published fifty-six years ago (!), and they continue to inspire delight among children and adults alike.
The above photos are a preview of House of Books, by Urban landscape photographer Franck Bohbot. In his new series, Bohbot pays where he tribute to the intricate, beautiful architecture of libraries all over the world. What has started in Paris and Rome will eventually make its way around the rest of Europe, South America, Asia and North America. Follow his amazing, ongoing project here.
