This has to be the best thing since sliced bread. Los Angeles in Maps by L.A. City librarian Glen Creason will feature 70 "reproductions of seminal and historic documents," ranging from Spanish explorers' charts to the old streetcar system and beyond.

The book is set to release on October 19th and includes a forward by D.J. Waldie (City of Lakewood/KCET) and contributions from Joe Linton (L.A. Creek Freak/CicLAvia) and Morgan Yates (AAA).
