A fully illustrated evocation of the rich architectural history that has given Los Angeles its unique character. A loving, provocative appeal to the rising pride and design consciousness of Angelenos, and anyone who has ever been entranced by the City of Angels. Full-color and black-and-white photographs. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
