Santa Barbara Magazine 

Summer 2018 Issue

Then & Now

"If you've had a hard time keeping up with the all the changes in Downtown Los Angele, help is at hand. DTLA Book 2018 ($38; District 8 Media, district8media.com) is part guidebook, part history, and part profile of some of the fascinating folks who live and work in the trendiest part of L.A. 'We completely expanded and redid the listings, the art coverage, the venues," says editorial director/former Santa Barbara Magazine features editor Degen Pener. 'One of my favorite parts is the stories and photos of silent film stars shooting downtown, juxtaposed with photographs of the intersections today.'"

"Downtown Los angeles steps into the spotlight with the augmented reality-enabled DTLA Book 2018 (District 8 Media, $38), an insider's look at the neighborhood's buzziest spots and the tastemakers shaping it."

THR Contributor Book Alert!

"Degen Pener, who writes about collectible watches in this issue (page 53), spent the winter months editing DTLA Book 2018 (District 8 Media, $38), which takes readers on a tour of the cutting-edge companies, buzzing hotspots and big personalities populating L.A.'s exploding urban district—with a few augmented reality tricks in the mix. Says Pener, 51, 'It brings downtown to life in beautiful ways.'"

WHY DISTRICT 8?

District 8 is the fictional space where our company operates. According to numerology, the number eight balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the number is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet it is not greedy; it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks. And if you rotate it 90˚, it transforms into the infinity symbol.
