Los Angeles. Portrait of a City - Reviews (13)
- My Favorite TASCHEN Book Is...
“I’ve called Los Angeles home for more than four decades, and still I manage to discover more of it every time I open this TASCHEN book. It captures everything I love about my home – Muscle Beach, palm trees, the Hollywood hills – and even manages to show off some of the things I hate – the fantastic map of the old, extensive public transit system that was dismantled and discarded reminds me of just how shortsighted my starstruck home can be. Benedikt Taschen did the impossible. He took a city obsessed with the hottest, newest things and managed to create a lasting and beautiful memory.”
