My dad was born and raised on the Royal mile in Edinburgh. I found this book in a museum gift shop in Edinburgh. I was thrilled to bring it home for my son.
Fun illustrations really sum up all the highlights of the beautiful city of Edinburgh. It's a coffee table book or bookshelf keeper for sure!

Anything Sasek does is five stars. Period. He writes books to own. (That said, I'm currently saving my $$ for this entire series...)

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!
