Love these stylised drawings of Edinburgh in the 60's. My Nan had this book when I was a kid and I loved it then as now!
Beautifully illustrated guide to Edinburgh to keep on your shelf or give to a kid.
Anything Sasek does is five stars. Period. He writes books to own. (That said, I'm currently saving my $$ for this entire series...)
