Inside Book Stand At The Standard

Inside Book Stand At The Standard 1

For the first time in a while, it seemed like last Thursday was one of those evening where there were so many things we had so many things we wanted to attend. There was the Munny show, there was the Charming Baker opening, and there was the opening of The Standard Hollywood’s Book Stand. The first two we had an idea of what to expect but the latter was the most intriguing as we hadn’t heard anything about it save for the hyper-clean website we had shared last week. What is it?

The Traveller: An Interview With Maya Erdelyi

The Traveller An Interview With Maya Erdelyi 1

Maya Erdelyi does not live in Los Angeles. A handful of months ago, on a cold evening in Echo Park, the animation artist and filmmaker was enjoying one of her final nights in town with a cup of tea at her dining room table. “I guess I move around a lot,” she says with a smile. “It’s good for me—difficult sometimes, but ultimately, it’s very stimulating and inspiring.

Whitewash, On LA’s Gemoetry

Whitewash, On LA's Gemoetry 1

Nicholas Alan Cope is a Los Angeles photographer who is a bit obsessed with our architecture. He has been chronicling the beautiful oddities for a while now and has catalogued them on his website. He has a very specific focus: very linear, very geometric, very 1970s, very LA stucco Bauhaus buildings. They feel cool but awkward and are almost alien as there is very little trace of Angelenos. It’s a remarkable examination that you’ll be able to see more of in Whitewash, Cope’s powerHouse book on these structures.
