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.

This book provided a great snapshot of contemporary art in California, which is helpful considering I've lived on the East Coast my entire life. It's nice to have a tangible, well-crafted document of the current art scene, as opposed to the countless, mind-numbing blogs and Tumblr accounts covering new artists. I enjoyed that each artist provided his or her own writing, which presented each story and the work with a unique voice. The book's art direction, editing and production quality are top notch.
