THE LOS ANGELES TIMES WEST 1966 - 1972
West was a weekly magazine supplement of the Los Angeles Times from 1967-1972, art directed by Mike Salisbury
and remembered as "a masterwork of design erudition, appreciated by those who could care less about design." Salisbury was recruited from Carson-Roberts Advertising in Los Angeles, an agency that also employed Ed Ruscha
(layout artist) and Terry Gilliam
(illustrator and copywriter).
With Amy Tan as Literary Editor, the L.A. Times relaunched West in 2006, 'offering readers an eclectic, insightful and entertaining view of the many faces of California.' It was killed off in 2007.
