Miroslav Sasek originally trained as an architect principally because his parents werent too keen on his ambition to become a painter but as if to prove that you shouldnt stand in the way of talent after he qualified he duly went off and became a painter of sorts. I recently came across Czech illustrator Miroslav Saseks set of reissued childrens travel books and instantly fell in love.
Als Student der Architektur und der Bildenden Kunst bereiste er Europa und arbeitete nach dem Studium als Karikaturist für tschechische Satireblätter.
Miroslav Sasek was born in Prague Czechoslovakia November 1916 to parents who generally discouraged his early interest in drawing and painting and pushed him instead into training as an architect. A trained architect he noticed that almost all tourist guides were aimed solely at adults and set about remedying the situation in glorious style. At the onset of the communist coup in 1948 aged 32 Sasek left Prague for Munich where from 1951-57 he worked for Radio Free Europe.
