The "photo driven" book oozes with the flavors (Im currently eating donuts) of the vibrant areas, stores, and restaurants of our very own Oakland. Since "creative thought and a pioneering spirit" describe the majority of its natives, it was easy to jump in to an event, book, and movement dedicated to the new image of this city.

 The farmiliar streets, dishes, and faces photographed in the "This is Oakland" remind readers of their own unique stories and memories that are all unified by one city. Today we participate in the packaging and presentation of the new age of Oakland, the acclaimed " brooklyn of the west!"
