Just received my copy of this and read it cover to cover straight away without putting it down. It's filled with a huge variety of great artists who are making work in California and tell stories about how they ended up here. Good job Justin.

Justin Van Hoy's book is a wonderful way to visit the contemporary art scene in California without leaving home. It is beautiful visually and with its combination of art, narrative on the art scene and personal reflections by the artists, it provides a deeper view of the scope of that scene than one would expect. The artist who compiled it has left a lasting tribute to this moment in time and space. The book illustrates what a loss his death shortly following its publication is to the LA arts community and to the larger world. It belongs in every college and university art history collection and on every art lover's coffee table.
