About this title


Over 40 churches are featured in over 700 vivid color photographs. The many churches in Los Angeles County are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered -- or rediscovered. Both newcomers and longtime residents of Los Angeles are often unaware of these beautiful buildings they pass daily.

Visitors to Southern California rarely miss Universal City, Disneyland or Hollywood Boulevard, but leave without realizing there is so much more beauty here to see -- the art and architecture of our churches.

These treasures, most built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, also tell the stories of the faith and determination it took to create places of worship in the community.

A locator map for each church is included in the hardcover edition along with an index complete with an exterior photograph, address, phone numbers and email address.

About the Author:

As publisher of Jewels in Our Crown, Carolyn Wierman Ludwig is fulfilling a longtime dream. Being a native of Los Angeles, she wanted to create a book capturing the beauty and glory of the churches of her own community. She and her husband Bruce, who live in Los Angeles, have supported archeologists, paleontologists, Egyptologists, scientists and authors.

Brianne Wierman Sanada is photographer and niece of Carolyn. Brianne is also a native of Los Angeles and studied photography with Brooks Institute graduate Jodye Alcon. She is a professional photographer of more than seven years.

Sydney Swire is a freelance writer living in Los Angeles and wrote the text to the book. She has written for the stage and radio, and is the former associate editor and current theatre critic for the Larchmont Chronicle newspaper.
