While I was in LA, I stopped into the amazing bookshop called Family LA, which is curated and owned by David Jacob Kramer and Sammy Harkham. These guys were one of the first on the block, which is now pulsing with skate kids and top eating spots like Animal and Golden State.

Family really have their eyes on the ball by curating only the best books from art, design and photography. If Werner Herzog and William Eggleston weren’t so busy, they’d be hanging out here all day. There is also a project space out the back where the lads do art exhibitions, and have book signings and video launches. Previous shows have featured Mike Mills, Pablo Ferro, Brian Roettinger, Ashley Macomber, and Ed Templeton. There needs to be a FAMILY in every city around the world.
