This is系列繪本出自捷克作家Miroslav Šašek。插畫顏色選用融合各地特色,還沒有去旅行,就讓人彷彿置身其境。其中This is New York還創下每天銷售600本的紀錄。

This is Hong Kong首次出版於1965年,Miroslav Šašek眼中60年代的香港呈現了東西文化的強烈反差。轟隆隆的飛機仔來世界各地的觀光客、人力車載著遊客穿越大街市集,映入眼簾的炒栗子小販,蜜汁烤鴨....。 還有未繁華前雲霧繚繞的九龍灣,還有獨特的“水上人家”,從未在陸地上行走生活。這是你知道的香港嗎?

旅行時,Miroslav Šašek繪本中的香港街景你還尋找的到?

Like the other Sasek classics, this is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than 40 years later. Facts have been updated for the 21st-century, appearing on a "This is . . . Today" page at the back of the book. These charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make for a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember the series from their own childhoods.

This is Hong Kong, first published in 1965, captures the enchantment and the contrasts of Hong Kong in the sixties. Roaring jets bring in the tourists; bamboo rickshaws taxi them through exotic streets fragrant with incense, roasting chestnuts, and honey-glazed Peking duck. Sasek shows you the sweeping panorama of gleaming Kowloon Bay framed by misty mountain ridges, then moves in for close-ups of laborers and hawkers, refugees from the mainland, and sailors of flame-red junks, and the strange "water people" who, it is said, never set foot on dry land.
