Spectacular book on the tropical Spanish style houses of California We will never be able to shake the Spanish influence from the architecture in the south of California It is just so beautiful This book is a wonderful showcase of Californian homes especially those from earlier in the 20th century It's also a nice reminder that while Los Angeles might be awash in tacky 1960's dingbats there's a lot of architectural treasures and gems tucked away in the high income high class neighborhoods in and around LA and other parts of Southern California including the exceptionally local Sherwood House which I had walked by several times knowing nothing about its historical or architectural or design value
