I am very pleased to announce that the good folks at the San Antonio Conservation Society have given me authorization to publish two of the marvelous documents they and the others below worked very hard to assemble regarding Faux Bois & Trabajo Rustico in San Antonio. If you ever plan on visiting this charming city, please, do take the map along and enjoy some of this town’s most celebrated and beloved works. Many of these sites are now on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places and are utterly unique to this craft and the Master Craftsmen who created them.
Many thanks to the following who made these documents possible:
University of Texas at San Antonio Department of Art and Art History
The Southwest School of Art
King William Association, and…
The San Antonio Conservation Society
