A photo-packed paean to America’s West Coast icon

Los Angeles

Los Angeles

By David L. Ulin

Hardcover, 572 pages / $69.99 (Taschen)

Ulin, the books editor for the Los Angeles Times, hosts this golly-whopping historical sweep to present an extraordinary depiction of the City of Angels, from the first known photograph ever taken of the shantytown that would become L.A. in 1862 to the modern-day urban metroplex it is today. Packed with more than 500 images from  photographers, archives and collectors, plus accompanying decade-by-decade  essays, it’s a sprawling, spectacular paean to one of America’s most iconic cities and its many contributions to world, cast in all its grit and greatness.
