Hermosa Beach Strandscape
The Hermosa Beach Strandscape project is the world's first 2-mile continuous panorama. It's an incredibly unique view of this beautiful stretch of sand: the playground of world famous volleyball players, surfers, tourists, and locals alike.
Inside you will find one continuous, seamless image of the entire beachfront vista of the city of Hermosa Beach. It's your view from the sand, your view from the surf, your view from the paradise that we lucky locals call home. The Hermosa Beach Strandscape was made from hundreds of photographs painstakingly merged together to blend into one seamless, continuous image.
The Strandscape panorama was then cut up into over 800 sideways-oriented images and posted on Instagram. Those cryptic, sideways images fit together like a puzzle and eventually began to reveal the Two-Mile Panorama Strandscape, which continued to expand until it documented the entire beachfront strand of Hermosa Beach, California.
The Strandscape is presented here for fans of beach culture, fans of beautiful places, and fans of the project. 'Hermosa' translates to 'beautiful', after all. The Artist and Author Ken Bishop lives and works in Hermosa Beach. You can find more of his work at www.kenbishopart.com.

The Road Trip Book: 1001 Drives Of A Lifetime
The world’s superlative road trips—scenic, thrilling, and memorable—in both natural and urban settings.
For anyone who has fallen under its spell, a car represents freedom and adventure. For decades, the American tradition of the road trip has been bound up with the idea of new possibilities and new horizons. This book is an indispensable guide to the most beautiful, breathtaking, extraordinary, and fun road trips the world has to offer.
Complete with road trips varying in length and level of challenge, from an epic transglobal route inspired by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s Long Way Round documentary series to a two-mile blast around Monaco’s F1 street circuit, there is something for any adventurer. Each entry provides information about distance, start and finish points, road surfaces, must-see stop-offs, detours, and other details to plan an unforgettable trip.
Entries are organized into three categories: Scenic, Adventure, and Culture. One can marvel at the views from Cape Town’s scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive or central California’s Pacific Coast Highway, but the thrill seeker might opt for the hair-raising ride through Montenegro’s coastal mountains to reach the medieval walled town of Sveti Stefan on the Adriatic. The culture category features routes inspired by film, literature, and history: re-create Thelma and Louise’s heart-pounding joyride (minus the final leap), savor Japan’s “Romance Road” through unspoiled small towns, or follow Jack Kerouac’s path from On the Road.
The yearning for a life of pared-down purity has built to a roar, and Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter—the husband-and-wife owners of General Store, one of California’s most talked-about shops—are at the forefront.
In Abode: Thoughtful Living with Less, these tastemakers make a graceful case for living better no matter your budget or abilities, guiding you to create a space this is simple and true. Their time-tested methods create interiors that maximize openness, strip a building back to its bones, and amplify natural light, evoking unpretentious tranquility.
The blueprint for their signature aesthetic is all here: the embrace of elemental materials, curation of handcrafted objects, and collection of furnishings from eras when craftsmanship was king. This edit of Mitnik-Miller and St. Peter’s greatest collaborations will take you through their breathtaking rooms, masterpieces of warm minimalism.
Abode is a glimpse into the couple’s process and a guide to manifesting your own beautiful interiors.

For autumn, she gathers fallen leaves, seasonal berries, and rose hips for flower arrangements and wreaths. To welcome spring, she turns to a garland made of newly formed fern fronds, while in summer, wildflowers, shells, driftwood, and other materials create an effortless bohemian beach look. Winter is embraced with the concept of hygge, using a neutral palette and candlelight for a feeling of coziness.
The book features illustrations that focus on only one house in order to demonstrate in practice how simple techniques and natural materials can create varied atmospheres throughout the year. Masureel shows the reader a more mindful way of living and decorating, revealing easy methods of styling the home following a less-is-more aesthetic to create an atmosphere that is warm, relaxing, and beautiful.
