The Ulysses Guide To The Los Angeles River Vol.1
Published by Grimmelbein Kitamura Editions
The culture of Los Angeles flows — both figurative and quite literally — through its central vein: The River. This book is borne from a fascination and love that precedes the attention that has shifted back to this flow. Fathered by the late Ulysses Zemanova and further nurtured by its co-authors/editors, The Ulysses Guide to the Los Angeles River moves beyond the overexposed culture of graffiti and misunderstood world of scientific discovery. The Ulysses Guide wishes to bring to light the authors’ interest, if only to spawn more within its readers. The Ulysses Guide’s first volume has two focuses: Biology and Art. Los Angeles-based artwork contributions from: Chaz Bojorquez, ZES, Jack Rudy, Chuey Quintanar, Steve Martinez, Gregg Stone, Robert Meinhardt, Chris Brand, SinerLTS, Evan Skrederstu, Rob Sato, and more. Interviews with artists also included. Good-sized, thick, lots of color photos of both nature and graffiti art.
