Architect Barbara Bestor's Bohemian Modern: Living in Silver Lake" is an eye catching local's local visual love song to my own beloved neighborhood.

Recently profiled in the LA Times Home section (and on AT:LA a few times!), Bestor frankly discusses the positive and negative effects of gentrification of a neighborhood she once remembers as "a little punk rock, a little gay, a little gangy, all these mixed things", but now is "all $35 steaks."

With illustrations by graphics superstar Geoff McFetridge, design by Michael Worthington, and page after page of beautiful photos of interiors and exteriors, readers will hopefully understand why both Bestor and I love this corner of Los Angeles with the same passionate zeal (despite the surge in price of steaks).
