    Douglas Woods, a Los Angeles native, has spent the last 20 years as a book dealer, consultant, and private librarian specializing in architecture and the arts. He has edited a variety of titles, including Rizzoli's California Romantica.
    Melba Levick is a widely published and exhibited photographer who works primarily in California, Paris, Spain, and Mexico.

    D.J. Waldie is the author of California Romantica, Where We Are Now: Notes from Los Angeles, and, among others, Holy Land: A Suburban Memoir, which won the California Book Award for non-fiction in 1996. He is a regular contributor to Los Angeles Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and L A Weekly.
    "This deluxe volume offers an exclusive look into the classic homes and gardens in the legendary neighborhoods in and around Los Angeles, such as Hancock Park, Windsor Square, Beverly Hills, Pasadena, and Malibu. In a region famed for its lavish homes and celebrity residents, one finds here a panorama of richly detailed architectural styles, from Craftsman, Tudor, and Georgian, to Spanish Colonial and Tuscan Revival examples." "Shown here in rich detail are the estate of the great Hollywood producer and director Cecil B. DeMille in Laughlin Park, the former Danny Kay House in Beverly Hills, the revered Millard House by Frank Lloyd Wright in Pasadena, and wonderful Arts & Crafts masterwork by Green and Green---the Gamble House---also in Pasadena. The works of those and other renowned architects, such as Wallace Neff, Paul Williams, George Washington Smith, and Roland Coate, illustrate the wide range of period-revival styles popular in Southern California during its "Golden Age of Expansion" from 1899 to 1938. Lush, all-new color photographs capture the grandeur of these homes and their exquisite gardens in the present day."--BOOK JACKET.
