M.Sasek’s (1916-1979) illustrated books, “This is XXXX( city names)” are pretty famous in the world. And I have loved his book, especially “This is Hong Kong”.

He illustrated simply the subjects he felt curious about Hong Kong. The book was published in 1965, and republished in 2007. Perhaps he had visited to Hong Kong during the early part of 1960s, and all of his illustrations in this book enchanted me.

This illustration showing inside of the peak tram is excellent. And I remember, at my first ride, I was very surprised when the conductor walked like this in the tram.;_ylt=A0SO8yjYIaNW0oIAlIhXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEycm5kcTc2BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjEzNTBfMQRzZWMDc2M-?p=Sasek%E3%80%80This+Is+Hong+Kong&fr=yfp-t-901
