We are suckers for really nicely designed maps. And when they celebrate independent city infrastructure and culture, then that is even better. This map of LA was drawn, and colored, by hand.

The map's whimsical character invites you to the other LA that the makers of the map participate in and populate with their efforts and their desire for a more inclusive, ecologically sustainable, counter-culturally-richer LA.
One side of this publication has 4 small maps of different parts of LA. The reverse side has detailed descriptions of the places on the map, plus two essays: "Micro-Geographies: Seeds Inside/Outside of LA" and "This is not a green guide".

Beekeepers, Greywater Operators, Hacker Spaces, Cooperatives, Collectives, Art Spaces, Radical Places, Gardens, Swimming Holes, Cooking Collectives, Think Tanks, etc.
