I was wondering if there are any real good picture books available about Los Angeles, its inhabitant's and the whole atmospehere over there.

Myself, I live in The Netherlands and have never been to LA before.
It is my wish to come and visit this city and drive through the suburbs like for instance the San Fernando Valley, and/or other places.

Gotta share something with ya...
I don't know but I have this weird feeling that I once lived there.
Goofy huh..
I know it sounds strange and to be honest to you, I should not mention it.
Than again LA always will have a place in my heart and its inhabitants.

Okay enough humbug now..., do you have any suggestions ???

Kind regards,
It's not in book-form, and I hope he doesn't mind my recommending his work, but KingoftheHill has an excellent collection of L.A. photos. His street-level portraits of the city and its denizens are remarkable. Google him.

(KingoftheHill, if you're out there, you seriously should publish a book).
