We are excited to give you a sneak peak at what’s to come for the spring 2021 season.

King Ranch: A Legacy in Art presents a beautiful, informative account of the ranch and its place in the artistic heritage of the region. Pairing original paintings by artist Noe Perez with insightful essays from curators Bruce Shackelford (you may have seen him appraising items on the Antiques Roadshow) and Ron Tyler, this book celebrates the many ways “King Ranch culture” has enriched appreciation for the decorative, practical, and fine arts in Texas and the greater American West. The Press is proud to be working in partnership with King Ranch to produce this exquisite book.

Nepantla Familias: An Anthology of Mexican American Literature on Families in between Worlds. Edited by award-winning writer and scholar Sergio Troncoso, this anthology of works of noted authors brings together Mexican American narratives that explore and negotiate the many permutations of living in between different worlds.

Also in the art and photography genre, Patsy Pittman Light follows up her award-winning Capturing Nature: The Cement Sculpture of Dionicio Rodríguez with Artisans of Trabajo Rústico: The Legacy of Dionicio Rodríguez.

This season features three strong additions to the Press’s celebrated canon of music titles. A tribute to the late country legend Billy Joe Shaver, a spotlight on Louise Tobin, a singer from the golden age of swing, and an exploration of the music of the Big Bend region round out the list.  

And to cap off this preview, we are proud to be publishing The Texas Triangle: An Emerging Power in the Global Economy by former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and former San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros and team, which examines the intricately linked phenomena of interwoven metropolitan population growth, economic power, quality education, business leadership, and fiscal significance that are reshaping the destiny of Texas.
