Great Luko 2006-08-28 12:18

When I was a kid, I had this famous illustrated book titled "This is New-York" naively drawn by Miroslav Sasek : it showed orangy colors, typical from the earky seventies, red NYFD engines and yellow cabs. I loved it, it had the power to trigger my kid's imagination like no books could, apart from its twin "This is Hong Kong".

This is is really what your picture makes me think of, perhaps with a mix of Shaftlike mood (that's more for the grown up kid part...).

I waited some thirty five years, until last year, to live the real thing and see NYC with my own eyes : I managed to find the same book at Barnes and Nobles and bought it to my daughter.

Salut Luko,

Jai bien appr嶰i ta visite et tes commentaires 嶰lair廥. En fait, les livres auxquels tu fais allusion ont 嶲alement marqu ma jeunesse. Il y a deux ans, jai offert 俊his is New York et 俊his is London mon filleul.

La magie de ces livres ne semblent pas sestomper et malgr lunivers de films danimation 3D, deffets sp嶰iaux et tout le reste, le gamin a qui jai offert ces livres a 彋 totalement fascin. Je suis convaincu que ta fillette a ressenti le m瘱e plaisir; il y a des choses plus 彋ernelles que dautres...

Merci encore pour le souvenir.
