New Book: Knott's Preserved

KNOTT'S PRESERVED: FROM BOYSENBERRY TO THEME PARK, A HISTORY OF KNOTT'S BERRY FARM, by Christopher Merritt and J. Eric Lynxwiler, recently turned up in my Amazon recommendations. It looks like a very interesting read for amusement park fans in general and Southern Californians in particular.

It's a brand-new hardcover book which is 160 pages long; it's also available in a softcover edition. It includes an introduction by legendary Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter.

One of the book's authors, Christopher Merritt, has worked on projects for Disneyland, including serving as the art director for the 2008 remodel of the Sleeping Beauty walk-through.

Werner Weiss reviewed the book at Yesterland. For more information, visit the book's website or Angel City Press.

By coincidence, this week's Los Angeles Times Food section ran an article on the history of the boysenberry.

For those who aren't yet familiar with it, a related book of interest is last year's KNOTT'S BERRY FARM: THE EARLY YEARS by Jay Jennings, which is part of the Images of America series from Arcadia Publishing.
