A HOUSE FOR TEXAS
by Larry Good, FAIA
A HOUSE FOR TEXAS, a reflection on the historic Elbert Williams House built in 1933 and designed by Dallas architect David R. Williams. The home is “considered to be the finest example of modern Texas regional residential architecture ever built in the state.” The first recipient of the AIA Dallas Historic Architecture Award, the residence was long considered to be at risk of a tear down, but has since been saved. In the book, author Larry Good contrasts the Elbert Williams House with other, more traditional houses of the 1930s, lamenting that the home’s significance and its position in the overall context of Texas’ architectural history may not be fully understood by most people. This is a legitimate concern which A HOUSE FOR TEXAS addresses through accomplished writing and the striking photography of architectural photographer Charles Davis Smith, FAIA.
Dallas: A Texas Star
by Carolyn Brown
From an ancient Indian gathering place to an 1840s trading post to today’s dynamic, world-class metropolis, Dallas has always been a destination for men and women with big dreams and the determination to make them real. It’s a place known for its outsized fortunes and over-the-top fun. Dallas: A Texas Star celebrates that heritage, and reveals the many fascinating faces of the city. Rich with gorgeous full-color images by world-renowned photographer Carolyn Brown, a longtime Dallas resident, and supplemented by lively essays on many aspects of the city by some of its greatest leaders, Dallas is a lavish feast of words and pictures—and a vivid illustration of what makes Dallas great. It’s also a personal tour of the city, with photographs of every “must-see” attraction and familiar landmark in and around town, as well as off-the-beaten-path sites that may surprise even the savviest Dallasite. Whether you’re a visitor to “Big D,” a lifelong resident, or a recent Texas transplant, Dallas: A Texas Star provides a warm welcome to the city—and a soaring testament to its elegance, diversity, and beauty. Simply put, it’s the ultimate book on Dallas.
