This is Ireland

This is Ireland by Miroslav Sasek (Universe, 2005). 



With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I thought it would be fun to take a look at this book. This is a reprint of Sasek's original book in the 1960s.  The vintage drawings are fun, but what's interesting is how current the images are in many ways.  I did an Irish study abroad program in college back in summer 2007 so it was fun seeing a lot of the landmarks I saw then.

Below are the famous Cliffs of Moher, both the illustration and a photo I took.

I hope everyone has a fun St. Patrick's Day!
