Self Portrait, with Birds. John Graves' delightful memoir is not so
much about the distinguished author himself as about people and
places that stand out in his memory, all of them in one way or
another associated with birds. Wood engravings by artist John
DePol complement the text. Winner of book design award in both
the Texas Institute of Letters and the national Carl Hertzog competi-
tions, the edition is signed by the author, quarter bound by hand in
leather over boards decorated with DePol engravings, and slipcased.
$195, plus $4.50 shipping, Texas residents add $16.09 sales tax.
Artistry in Single Action is the saga of the Grizzly, the first single-
action revolver made in Texas after the Civil War period, and the
eccentric near-genius who created it. Based on six years of research
by author Halton Henderson, the book traces the design, production
and trials of the Grizzly and is profusely illustrated by photographs
and working drawings. The foreword is by the eminent Texas histo-
rian J. Evetts Haley. Honored in the Carl Hertzog book design
competition, it is letterpress printed, quarter bound by hand in
Moroccan leather, and slipcased. Special collector's price, $95 (pub-
lication price was $299), plus $5 shipping. Texas residents add
$7.84 sales tax. ISBN: 0-9626336-0-1.
