Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Borislav Stanic

Borislav Stanic is an art-lover who came to L.A. from Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia), on a visit 23 years ago and decided to stay.

In Europe, he'd been an author and publisher of art books; hoping to find an L.A. museum guide for his own use, he discovered that none existed and decided to fill the gap.

His Los Angeles Attractions (Museon Publishing) is an exhaustive guide to every collection of art, artifacts and vehicles, every historic site, aquarium, botanical garden and zoo he's been able to uncover in Los Angeles County, the world may well conclude that it didn't know the half of it.

.

Based on the award-winning book Museum Companion to Los Angeles by Borislav Stanic, Museon Publishing launched an app which is the only complete guide for discovering art, architecture, history, nature and science in Los Angeles County.

The first two editions emerged in 1996 and 1998 and sold a combined 20,000 copies; the new one, 13 years later, includes more than 30 museums that he says have opened in the interim. Stanic says art museums are his primary love — and his book attests that L.A. has 36.

Borislav Stanic's comprehensive manual on museums and related attractions reveals L.A. in all its quirks.
