DEAR SELLER: Real Estate Love Letters from Los Angeles
A poignant and honest exploration of the lives of everyday Angelenos who are writing from the heart, Dear Seller features 25 memorable letters by individuals who attempted to capture the hearts of home sellers with their words in order to win the bidding war for the home of their dreams. Each letter paints a portrait of its author: his or her family, background, and values, using social capital as well as actual capital in an effort to be selected. Through interviews and written accounts, plus more than 100 photographs, you will follow these homeseekers from the moment they saw their perfect homes to what happened after they submitted their letters.
Foreword by D. J. Waldie
Contributors include Neelanjana Banerjee, Simone Boden, Chris and Lorena De La Rosa, David Hart, Edan Lepucki, Maureen Meyer, Sarah and Shawn Michaels, and Robin Sukhadia.

Griffith Park Map Tote
Designed by Miriam Blier, this whimsical Griffith Park map appears as a fold-out in our We Heart P-22 book. Miriam feels almost everything in design and life is about striking a perfect (or perfectly imperfect) balance, and that at its most compelling, visual communication is good storytelling. It is digitally printed on a canvas tote by Print Renegades.
A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Friends of Griffith Park, which works to protect P-22’s habitat, and the park itself, for visitors of all species to enjoy.
Originally conceived as cutout hand puppets for the We Heart P-22 book, these P-22 faces were drawn by a 5-year-old and inked by her father. The pattern is screen-printed in hot pink on a canvas tote by the fine folks at Print Renegades in Los Angeles.
A percentage of proceeds go to the campaign Save LA Cougars, which raises money for the Liberty Canyon wildlife crossing.
Love P-22 Canvas Tote
Drawn by Leticia Meza, this illustration graces the cover of our We Heart P-22 book. She is a native of Los Angeles, has worked as a graphic designer and musician. She loves traveling, wine, and learning about L.A. history. This drawing is screen-printed in black on canvas totes by Print Renegades in Los Angeles.
A percentage of proceeds from the bag go to the campaign Save LA Cougars, which raises money for the Liberty Canyon wildlife crossing.
