The Bookshelf, Young Texas Reader, Blog Notes, & Texana Youtube Channel

The Texas Bookshelf is for single, specific books' reviews and author interviews . The Texas Parlor ranges more broadly than my other websites. The Young Texas Reader focuses on the youngest through teenagers. Texas Blog Notes surveys blogs of historical and literary interest. I've started a Will's Texana Youtube collecting channel where 1,000 videos are collected in 100 playlists . Find Will in Houston or at willstexana {at} yahoodotcom

Al Lowman, Printing Arts: Online Exhibit

Fruits of a Gentle Madness: The Al Lowman Printing Arts Collection and Research Archive

Self-described as:  "Centered on Al Lowman's work, Printing Arts in Texas, a history of fine printing in Texas until 1975, the exhibit features materials related to book designers and printers discussed by Lowman, including Carl Hertzog, William D. Wittliff, the William R. Holman family, Edwin B. Hill, the Book Club of Texas, the first university press in the state of Texas -- S.M.U. Press, and the University of Texas Press. The exhibit displays both trade and special editions of exemplary books, as well as their many significant and unique features such as typography, layout and illustrations."
