About Us

Angel City Press was established in 1992 and is dedicated to the publication of high-quality nonfiction books. The award-winning books from Angel City Press are sold in fine gift and book stores, and on the Web.

Drenched in nostalgia yet undeniably cool, each Angel City Press book is luxuriously illustrated and showcases the modern design concepts of California's top graphic artists.

So it is with the entire treasury of Angel City Press books -- each is forever readable, forever giftable. Angel City Press books are published with extraordinary attention to detail, in the finest tradition of the bound page.

By May of 1993 we had our first book, Hollywood du Jour, in the hands of hungry, nostalgic readers... but not for long; they were quite busy whipping up Sticky Orange Rolls from the Tick Tock Tea Room and swilling Moscow Mules from Cock 'n' Bull. 

In the ensuing two decades, we have learned that our readers' tastes and hungers go way beyond food, and have done our best to chronicle the cultural history of the West.
