    Luxuriously, Los Angeles!

    Weighing in a nine pounds and a huge lap full at 18' X 15' X 2' LOS ANGELES, the book, is as spectacular and huge as the city it emulates! This is a splendid spectrum of photographic views of all that is Los Angeles. Diane Keaton provides the spunky introduction to this lavish volume and few could have better summarized what makes Los Angeles unique. What then follows are Tim Street-Porter's photographic explorations of the idiosyncratic homes that span the gamut of style and period, the boulevards with the trademark palm trees, the landscapes that touch this city at the mountains, the desert, and the ocean perimeters, and the architectural wonders that continue to sprout and blossom here. Space is generously given to Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall, to the Mineo Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, to the early Hollywood art deco theaters, and to the various neighborhoods that make Los Angeles a city of cultural miscegenation. As is standard for Rizzoli Books the paper and color reproductions are of the highest quality. There are many fold out pages which, in a book this size, result in panoramas beneath the sun and the stars that spread for sixty inches! There are no holds barred at making this hefty tome a true homage to the City of the Angels and will surely build the city's reputation as a place of beauty wherever it is sold. A high end but gorgeous gift! Grady Harp

    Just purchased this book...

    I just purchased this book. I am some-what impressed. I have always dreamed of living in L.A. This book showed a lot of the arhitectural scenes of the city of angels. I was hoping it would have more beach pictures and things like that. It had some, but this book is mostly focused on the architecral structures of L.A. Overall, I am glad I bought this book, but if you are not into architecture and want a book on Holywoood & the beaches, this book probably isn't the best for that.
