"Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream? Everybody comes here, this is Hollywood — land of dreams!
Some dreams come true, some don't, but keep on dreamin' — this is Hollywood! Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin'!"
-The Happy Guy from Pretty Woman
Through this multilayered portrait of Los Angeles, discover the soul and secrets of the region from local recommendations, neighborhood profiles, interviews, maps and more.
Towering palms. Grand boulevards. Eternal summer. This dreamer's town comes sun-baked with a strong blend of frontier.
Equal parts travel guide and tribute, the Los Angeles field guide contains personal essays, hand-drawn maps, interviews, and local lore from an eclectic team of trusted locals.
While it functions as a perfect guide to an upcoming visit, its real beauty lies in its lasting ability to capture your imagination and enlighten you even if you're a local and have spent a lifetime exploring the area.
Unlike traditional guidebooks that list the same old must-see sights and touristy neighborhoods, this new series, entitled Wildsam Field Guides, gets at the soul of a city.
-Conde Nast Traveler
These pocket guides cover more than just where to drink. More storybook than guidebook, Wildsam's slim volumes include local culture and history, essays, short stories, illustrations, and short biographies the kind of information you need to truly learn about a place rather than just putting together a tick-list of things to do.
For tireless seekers of the authentic (or anyone with a serious Instagram habit who's on the hunt for offbeat sights), this pocket-size guidebook eschews the boring-but-practical stuff in favor of evoking what the jacket copy calls a "bygone sense of place."
-Wall Street Journal
City guides with a Wes Anderson aesthetic.
