Overview

Art at Our Doorstep: San Antonio Writers and Artists pays tribute to the city's vibrant creative community. A gathering of both literary and visual art, the book features poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction from writers who are closely associated with the city or who have been in years past. All capture the city’s inimitable local culture with style, intelligence, and affection. Accompanying the writing are works of art by San Antonio artists, creating a book in the style of Naomi Shihab Nye’s Is This Forever, or What? The images don’t simply illustrate the text, but instead complement it in an associative or aesthetic sense, and all were selected by Riley Robinson, one of the city’s best-known curators. An engaging combination of literary and artistic excellence, this handsome coffee-table book celebrates in words and images the city of San Antonio and its creative spirit.
