September's Vanity Fair has six images from photographer Tim Street-Porter's new entry on the list of books that are titled simply Los Angeles. I don't know about the book, but the images in VF are gorgeous—of the Bradbury Building interior, the old Pan-Pacific Auditorium, the streamline Coca-Cola bottling plant downtown and the Herman Sachs ceiling fresco over the auto entrance at Bullock's Wilshire. Rizzoli is charging $195 for the limited edition, which comes with a foreword by Diane Keaton. Vanity Fair also teases to The Tender Bar, the new memoir coming from L.A. Times staff writer J.R. Moehringer, with his picture.
Also, via Publishers Lunch: Arianna Huffington has sold a book on "women and fearlessness, including advice on 'how to be bold, how to make yourself bulletproof, and how to say what you need to say and do what you need to do while embracing, not dreading, the reactions of others,'" to Little, Brown.
