What People are Saying About Texas As I See It
What People Are Saying About Texas As I See It
Over the last year we’ve been receiving comments from the many people who have received Texas As I See It – my coffee table photography book on The Lone Star State. The most frequent “comment” if you will is a rapid inrush of air upon opening the book to any page. That’s right. A “GASP” is what we have heard most often. Only in the last few days have we clued into this in a conscious way. I cannot tell you how gratifying this is to hear.
I suppose the most frequently-heard comment next in line would be simply “Amazing”. This seems to be uttered numerous times while turning the pages of the only copy of the book we have on hand.
In addition to the mini-testimonials listed here, it is also wonderful to hear that every person we’ve worked with at Brown Books was anxious to buy at least one copy for themselves. It doesn’t hurt that they can do this at a substantial discount, of course…
In addition to the hundreds of gasps we have heard, some of the more eloquent quotes are listed below:
“LOVE Warren’s book! Fav “live” photos: baby mockingbird and the biker with the Yorkie. Trying to decide about the still life favs. Thanks, Warren!”
” The package came this afternoon. For weeks, we have been hovering around 98 – 105 degrees, and so the box was hot and heavy in my hands. What a delightful surprise. It reminded me of the heat of a Texas summer. The photos showed that my old memories are right, that much of the state is fairly flat, with a wide bowl of sky that dominates the landscape. Most of the pictures exude heat and stillness, especially those that have rust in them. I turned the pages slowly because I didn’t want the book to reach the back cover. And the inscription was delightful.”
Please thank Warren again for me….
“We both enjoyed your book very much. Its an interesting take on rural Texas.”
“I’ve been calling Warren the Ansel Adams of Texas. Correction: Ansel was the Warren Paul Harris wannabe of California. You go Warren”
“The photos were Amazing. What a great book and to see our awesome state of Texas. Loved the preview.”
“Warren Harris is an amazing talent. The images captured within this publication are truly exceptional. Insightful, delightfully composed images that speak volumes of truth about the great state of Texas. If you haven’t purchased this collection yet, you should. You will not be disappointed with your investment, and you will be supporting great art from an exceptional artist!!! Your photographic contributions to the documentation of Texas history are greatly appreciated Warren. Great job! Thank You.”
“I absolutely love the book. The pictures are just beautiful and I love the comments Warren has about them. It’s fascinating to me to see these pictures through the eyes of the photographer. He is truly an artist. I decided to leave one of the books out on my coffee table for people to see when they’re looking at the house and take the other one home for me. I’m going through it slowly because I’m reading each comment and really studying the photo. Please tell Warren how much I am enjoying his wonderful talent!”
“I love my new book!”
