Please join the Briscoe Center and authors Lonn Taylor and David Warren for a booksigning in celebration of the publication of the updated Texas Furniture, Volume One.

The art of furniture making flourished in Texas during the mid-nineteenth century. To document this rich heritage of locally made furniture, Miss Ima Hogg enlisted Lonn Taylor and David B. Warren to research early Texas Furniture and its makers. Their extensive research efforts resulted in the 1975 publication of Texas Furniture, which quickly became the authoritative reference on this subject. Now updated and expanded, Texas Furniture presents a catalog of more than two hundred pieces of furniture, each superbly photographed and accompanied by detailed descriptions of the piece’s maker, date, materials, measurements, history, and owner, as well as an analysis by the authors. The book features many pieces of furniture that are part of the Briscoe Center’s Winedale collections.

Books may be purchased at the event. Lonn Taylor and David Warren will be available to sign books.

RSVP by March 16 to cah.rsvp@austin.utexas.edu or (512) 495-4369.

Directions

Texas Furniture, Volume One is published by the University of Texas Press.
