Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A native of Parker Country, DON COLLINS served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, attended classes at several Texas universities, and in 1956 entered an informal partnership with Austin printer Jack Wilson. Operating from a business they called The Art Studio, the two men designed and produced graphic arts materials for customers that ranged from real estate agents to book publishers. All this time Don inclined toward drawing old architectural works. Several large commissions from printers stimulated a long-time interest in rural scenes and architecture. He lives in Austin and Arlington. T. LINDSAY BAKER holds the W.K. Gordon Chair in Texas Industrial History at Tarleton State University. He is the author of more than twenty books on the history of Texas and the American West.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are old enough to remember Model T Fords or young enough
to understand the Blue Berry, you will find this book the most exacting
record of the past and the most interesting to follow through. These
drawings of Don Collins are not only facinating but authenic. This book
will be the most read on your coffee table. Sam Harris, 3232 Hwy 29E,

My daughter-in-law is one of Don's daughters. I have collected the calendars for 15+ years and have some of his original art works and attended some of his art shows over the years. I am so pleased to have this book published.

A difficult book to locate, but seller went out of the way to find it for us and kept us informed during the process. Book arrived shortly in beautiful condition. It's a lovely book, worth the trouble and the wait. Thank you!

By Lola on May 25, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a collection of sketches by the author tracing his travels on back roads around the state looking for those places long forgotten. His sketches and remembrances are wonderful and lend a sense of dignity to places that once stood proud and were important to a family or a community whose stories are now lost to time. If you enjoy art or history or both you will enjoy this book.
