This lively, lavishly illustrated volume, from PaperCity Visual Arts Editor and long-time Lawndale friend, Catherine Anspon, offers a fresh take on the mid-career players (plus a few up-and-comers) upon the rich canvas of Texas's art scene. Sixty-two artists are surveyed via insider studio tours, portraits, and examples of their work, accompanied by concise essays that elucidate each talent's intent, inspiration, and working methods. Published in a collectible, limited edition of 3,000 hand-numbered copies, this memorable survey is presented in an oversized format, producing an art tome as big as Texas.

Priced at just under $100, this volume makes a great gift!
