(London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Fine in Fine original glassine dust jacket. Produced with the same deadpan style that characterized his previous artist's books, "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" and "Various Small Fires and Milk," this book presents a distinctly American typological study of the ubiquitous post-war Los Angeles apartment buildings, here identified in the titles only by their addresses. In some cases, imposing minimalist structures dwarf the surrounding landscape; in other instances, superficial, faux-exotic themes pathetically exude a desperate attempt to create some sort of oasis for residents amid the sprawling city.
