These three (very different) books have just gone to their printers, all designed by Future Studio. Look for some related events in Spring 2014.
Coming this spring from Prospect Park Books! Auntie Em's is a Northeast LA institution, and owner/chef Terri Wahl is super nice and has some really bright & beauteous vegetable tattoos (you can see some of her arms in some photos in the book), not to mention that she has a way with your hearty brunch menus... (plus desserts)... and she includes music selections with each recipe.
Coming this spring from Santa Monica Press! This is a fantastic collection of oral histories by musicians, producers, DJs, backup singers, and songwriters, squeezed in with hundreds of images--lots of rare ones--of concerts, ephemera, snapshots, and ads. It's a big, fun book that really marks how big and fun the music world was back then. Foreword by Tom Petty! Afterword by Roger Steffens!
Coming this spring from Angel City Press! Their first novel--it takes place in Los Angeles, and is a fictional story starring Mabel Normand.
