Journey through the History of Malibu

Local Centennial Committee releases new book featuring stunning collection of vintage photographs

Malibu, CA
PRLog - Nov. 2, 2011 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- New from Arcadia Publishing, Ben Marcus, and Marc Wanamaker is Malibu. This pictorial history is the latest volume in the popular Images of America series and affords readers a unique opportunity to reconnect to the history that shaped their community.

Malibu offers the best in Southern California living. This small town is situated close to Los Angeles and Hollywood, but far enough away from the traffic and stress of big-city life. All the clichés of Southern California come true in Malibu: the swimming pools, movie stars, paparazzi, and fancy cars. It’s the land of champagne wishes and caviar dreams.

Malibu is also a beautiful, quiet and surprisingly rural beachfront community. In a desirable location going back to the time of the Chumash Indians, the peace and environment of Malibu have been protected by city fathers with a vision. This is the California Riviera, a thin slice of la dolce vita located between the Santa Monica Mountains and the deep blue sea.

Highlights of Malibu include:
•   Rancho Topanga Malibu Sequit: 1802–1929
•   The Swingin’ Thirties: 1930–1939
•   Life during Wartime and after: 1940–1949
•   The Golden Years: 1950–1959
•   Beach Blanket Berserko: 1960–1980
•   Malibu Is Stranger than Fiction: 1981–2011

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
