Highlights

UTSA Libraries Special Collections archives the output of small and fine presses in Texas. Although the current primary focus is on San Antonio presses, the work of other important Texas presses of importance is also collected.  This past month, we were fortunate to be able to add several titles in near-pristine condition to the collection that showcase the work of Texas printer Bill Holman (also a one-time library administrator in San Antonio) and his son David Holman, principally at the Wind River Press in Austin, TX. To learn more about the history of printing arts in Texas, see this article from the Handbook of Texas Online.
