LONG BEACH ARCHITECTURE, The Unexpected Metropolis by Cara Mullio and Jennifer M. Volland.

Beginning with an illustrated essay on the history of the built development of Long Beach, this big and beautifully produced volume also documents one hundred of the city's most important architectural projects, built, unrealized, and demolished, by architects as varied as Julia Morgan, Edward Killingsworth, Greene and Greene, and Raphael Soriano. New and archival photographs, many by masters such as Julius Shulman and Marvin Rand, combine with the fresh and original prose to present a city both familiar and undiscovered. A must for architects, local residents, indeed anyone with curiosity about the urban growth of Southern California.

The OutsideLeft iPod... (Set to shuffle)
There isn't a week that goes by that we get an email from a reader wondering what we here in the OutsideLeft offices are listening to. Every now and then we'll get a good promo and listen to it for the entire day, but we also like the classics so our list is usually a mix of the old and the new. Here's what's on the office iPod this week (with links to the song's respective video for your viewing pleasure courtesy of YouTube.com).
