80 and Sunny was started to pay homage to the magical light of Los Angeles through the art of contemporary weather description. This book is a collection of 365 daily blog entries that creatively describe the subtle differences in Southern California sunshine (some have called it the Philip Glass of Weather Writing - tiny differences in repetitive constructs). Besides ultra high-brow literary references, deep meteorological information, and scientific atmospheric insights, the book makes metaphorical use of 7-11 big bite hot dogs, sleeveless tops, baseball, and dirt. Also includes great black and white photos of the real Los Angeles taken by area photo enthusiasts. Great for anyone that loves to compare, loves sunshine, loves Los Angeles, and loves unique publications.
