If you love Los Angeles, you will love this book. Chances are when you are driving or biking or walking throughout the city, you are often coming in contact with the architecture of John Parkinson. These buildings are monumental to the feeling, the fabric, and the history of Los Angeles. The story of John Parkinson's life and work is one that needed telling, and Stephen Gee has told it so well.

As a Parkinson relative who has undertaken research of the man's work in the past, I too can vouch for the fact that there is no other complete history of it available (asides from his own memoirs). Great writing, well researched and a lovely design with excellent, well printed photos. A truly fitting memorial.

Thank you Mr. Gee for this beautiful book. I have spent many hours exploring the architecture and neighborhoods of downtown Los Angeles and like him, wondered why there was not an architectural monograph of Parkinson's work like you find for firms such as McKim, Mead, and White as an example. The more I researched significant historical L.A. buildings the more his name popped up and now with Mr. Gee's book I find that Parkinsn's influence went farther to buildings I would never have guessed (e.g. Hotel Utah). This is an excellent book for people who love Los Angeles, which I do; and for fans of architecture, which I am.

Good photos of this architect's work in Los Angeles. Drawings of unrealized project of an art deco skyscraper also interesting. Looks a lot like the the Board of Trade Building in Chicago A good read for those interested in buildings done by this architect
