Quirky Berkeley by Tom Dalzell (2016)

quirky-cover-thumbnailQuirky Berkeley pays tribute to the boldly imaginative artwork on display in front of, on top of, and engulfing residents’ houses all over the city, all visible from the street. With full-color photographs and a pithy wit, Tom Dalzell shares his discoveries of the unexpected: the giant orange on Spruce Street, a house shaped like a fish, bowling balls as lawn art, enormous dachshund sculptures, and the birdhouse pyramid on Sacramento, to name just a few. Included in every write-up are profiles of the artists, individuals who share their exuberant self-expression with all of us. Price: $20.00 ($15.00 plus $5.00 shipping).
