Double Takes: This is… Miroslav Sasek

Czech author and illustrator Miroslav Sasek published a delightful 18 book series called

This Is... between 1959-74 (republished between 2004-08). While his books were intended for children, their appeal is ageless. The series features a plethora of destinations from Paris to Hong Kong. I would absolutely love to call this entire collection my own. You can read more about Miroslav Sasek and see examples of his work at This is M. Sasek.

Double Takes: Mapbook: Contexture Design

I document my travels in a pocket-sized Moleskine cahier. I have one for each country I’ve visited with memories, notes and sketches from my trip. I just might have to switch to using these Mapbooks by Contexture Design. They’re made from 100% recycled paper and the cover features a unique map.
