Paperback LA Preview: #Do You Miss the ’80s?

This photo perfectly captures one of the moods of the new anthology Paperback LA Book 1, A Casual Anthology: Clothes. Coffee. Crushes. Crime.  Shot by Robert Landau, who has contributed a photo essay to the upcoming book,  this unadulterated ’80s moment reminds us of LA’s often cheeky approach to the good life.

See the preview photo gallery below. Check back next week for another photo surprise, part of our warm-up to the May, 2018 publication. We’re sharing some pictures that are not in the book, most of them gone now from the cityscape.
