A Book by Rudy VanderLans Based on Lyrics and Music by Van Dyke Parks

Palm Desert is a combination travel book, fan's tribute, Chamber of

historical, vernacular, experimental and political themes.

Essays by Kenneth FitzGerald and Brian Schorn.
Typeface designs by Zuzana Licko.
Also includes a bonus music CD containing the original Palm Desert 
recording as well as three loose adaptations/interpretations by Itchy
