Über diesen Titel
$14.95 gatefold paper * 1-58685-145-4 * April 7-1/2 x 8-1/2 in, 96 pp, Color Illustrations Throughout Rights: W, History/Regional Hollywood in Vintage Postcards is a colorful celebration of Hollywood's storied and glamorous past. What began as a thriving agricultural community-promoted by developers as a place of year-round sunshine and citrus-scented air-slowly transitioned into the thriving metropolis it is today. Hollywood now strives to preserve the elegant architecture that illustrates her undeniably glorious history, from the Hollywood Bowl to Grauman's Chinese Theatre to the Capitol Records tower. The formal Beaux Arts and the ornamental Spanish Colonial Revival reflect her self-confident extravagance, while newer Art Deco and Moderne structures bespeak her lofty dreams for sophistication; those dreams and more are captured forever in the historic postcards collected here. Rod Kennedy Jr.'s books include Lost New York in Old Postcards, The Brooklyn Cookbook, and The County Fair Cookbook, with Lyn Stallworth; and Atlantic City: 125 Years of Ocean Madness, with Lee Eisenberg and Vicki Levi. He lives in New York City. Elizabeth Ellis is an archivist with a MLS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She collaborated previously with Rod Kennedy on Lost New York in Old Postcards, and is currently working on a book of short stories. Hollywood Heritage, Inc., is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Hollywood.From the Inside Flap:
