Coffee table book on Lake Oswego released

Ron Wilks, owner of Rhino Media Group, has released a new coffee table book, “Lake Oswego, a great place to live.” In production for the better part of a year, it is available for sale at Graham’s Book and Stationery, 460 Second St. in Lake Oswego, and other locations.

The book showcases some of the remarkable residences in the community, from the stone manse on Jantzen Island, reclaimed by Avia founder Jerry Stubblefield, to delightful cottages in First Addition, and classic Richard Sundeleaf homes throughout the area.

The book has sections on neighborhood feel, economic health, education of young people, art and culture, recreation, and even the legendary boathouses on several of the properties along the lake shore.

Photographic images, most by local professionals, are plentiful, sizable, and illustrate the stories being told in ways that rivet the reader. Design for the book was done by longtime resident, Loren Weeks, editorial and narrative by Tim Leigh.
