1st ed.
Here is Los Angeles in all its many forms and guises, beautifully illustrated by collage artist Elisa Kleven--a native of L.A.--and narrated by L.A. journalists Julie Jaskol and Brian Lewis. From Hollywood and the La Brea Tar Pits to Watts Towers and the Getty Museum, twenty sites of interest are explored in large, detailed, whimsical pictures and in text that is both thoughtful and easy to read. Elisa Kleven has observed L.A. closely and translated its sights and rhythms into her magical artwork, just as she did for San Francisco in the best-selling City by the Bay (Chronicle). A map, introductory essay, and further fun-filled facts round out this tour of Los Angeles, giving readers in any part of the U.S. an appreciation of its long history, varied ethnic groups, and diverse, colorful neighborhoods.Packed with people and places to look at and pore over, this book can be used by a wide range of children, teenagers, and adults. Perfect for use at home as well as in libraries and schools, it will tie into the subjects of California history, Spanish heritage studies, American individualism, and urban life.
