LOS ANGELES MURALS and LOS ANGELES MURALS BY AFRICAN-AMERICAN ARTISTS by Robin Dunitz (RJD Enterprises , P.O. Box 64668 , Los Angeles, Calif. 90064: $7.25 each; 27 pp.). The generally fair weather and the seemingly endless supply of wall space on buildings and along freeways has made Los Angeles the mural capital of the United States, with nearly 2,000 painted walls. The subject matter ranges from movie stars to whales to visions of ethnic pride. The sharp, clear photographs in these two collections of outsize postcards should stimulate interest in L.A.'s murals.
