This is the United Nations

United Nations people

This is the United Nations is a wonderful book - bright and full of international colour.

In 2003, the United National Postal Authority issues some stamps and postcards featuring pictures from the book.

It is one of the rarer titles in the series as it has not yet been reissued.

What the critics said about This is the United Nations

Over the past 10 years, Miroslav Sasek has made a distinguished contribution to "geography without tears" with his elegant and witty comment in text and illustration on his global peregrinations. He has now reached the hub of the Universe in This is the United Nations. Delightfully illustrated and highly informative this will be welcomed with relief by all who have had to plough through complicated and solemn tomes, children and adults alike
