This is Cape Canaveral: cover

This is Cape Canaveral (c)1963, written and illustrated by Miroslav Sasek.


Considered one of the rarest of the infamous "This is..." books by M. Sasek, this book was republished as This is Cape Kennedy in a later edition.


The dust jacket is still intact, although there is some considerable wear, including a section torn off right where the family is. This the hardback cover, in pretty decent shape.

    This illustration appears to be of the missile display that was in front of the Tech Lab on A1A at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida... just superb!

    I love love love Sasek. When I found "Questa è New York" (this is new york) in a comic shop here in italy I just picked it up and run to the cashier...
