KIRKUS REVIEW

City by the Golden Gate, Queen of the West, this is San Francisco, captured in spirit and essence by an artist who seeks out the vital and differentiating characteristics of all the cities he happily commits to the drawing board. The world's crookedest street and perpetually slanted cable cars; Telegraph Hill, Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown; the Japanese tea garden, the great bridges, the maze of freeways; these are the many faces of majestic San Francisco. Following This is New York, M. Sasek achieves another success with his second American city. The book defies age-group limits. One serious drawback however—binding is perishable board and paper paste-down.
