The VLN resources include a bookstore in association with Amazon.com, links to Bay Area culture and lifestyle, transcriptions of bumper stickers observed in San Francisco, and the work of the Ecuadorian painter Luis Lara.
The VLN Bookstore includes popular fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as guides and critical works dealing with the principle architects, artists, patrons, and social conditions that determined the evolution of architecture and design in the San Francisco Bay Region and Northern California.
The Links point toward Bay Area lifestyle insofar as it is related to the arts, sciences, fine dining and commerce.
The observation of Bumper Stickers was begun in January 2001. The texts, which index the philosophical, political, and poetic views of Bay Area citizens, reflect the very democratic faith that everyone's opinion counts, albeit, perhaps, never for everything, always at least for something.
Luis Lara's Art Work is showcased here by the artist's "Talking Papers," a unique and valuable expression of the Humanist tradition.
