Seventeen Hollywood Palm Trees


This is a continuation of Ed Ruscha’s A Few Palm Trees, celebrating seventeen contemporary palms, presented in the exact same format in regard to size, typeface, and layout. However, the palms of today face the threat of erasure due to infection, draught, wildfires, and natural lifespan. Because they don’t provide shade, the City of Los Angeles has declared they are against planting any new palm trees, making the ones in this book both iconic symbols of California’s past and its perilous future in the face of climate change.
