From the first known photograph taken in Los Angeles to its most recent sweeping vistas, Los Angeles: Portrait of a City provides a fascinating journey through the city's history. It traces the city's development from the 1880s real estate boom, through the early days of Hollywood and the urban sprawl of the late 20th century, right up to the present day. This book depicts Los Angeles in all its glory and grit, via essays and hundreds of freshly discovered images culled from major historical archives, museums, private collectors, and universities.
By Kevin Starr, David L. Ulin, and Jim Heimann. Hardcover. 572 pages.

It’s hard to imagine that publishing juggernaut TASCHEN began life as an 18-year-old’s comic book shop. Founded in 1980 and still helmed by Benedikt Taschen—an art lover who believes in the democratization of the art-book market—TASCHEN is now a worldwide leader in art book publishing, best known for its superb subject choice, text, design, and high-quality printings.
