Houses of Los Angeles
In October Acanthus Press is scheduled to release the two-volume, Houses of Los Angeles. Both books will focus on the city's highly diverse residential architecture. Volume I, Houses of Los Angeles, 1885-1919, will include Moorish villas, Spanish missions, French châteaux, and Japanese palaces.
Volume II, Houses of Los Angeles, 1920-1935, will focus on 37 in-town residences and mountainside estates, such as the homes of actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, producer David O. Selznick, and Chinese art dealer Grace Nicholson. In total, about 800 archival photographs, as well as landscape and floor plans will be included.
