Miroslav Sasek - artist, illustrator and author
23 March 2012
Just a quick little nod to some pieces by Czech artist Miroslav Sasek. He's very well known for his 'This is...' book for children of many cities of the world. I like the typography in the cityscapes and all the cars in these images. I also really like the pattern made by the strikers and their googly eyes though I must say no strikers I ever saw in NY looked like they stepped off the set of Madmen, obviously fashion standards had dropped on the picket line since Saseks time but these ones work in the industry so that's probably why. Love the underground station image too, nice swirling lines.
