HORSES TO RIDE, CATTLE TO CUT

 

WYMAN MEINZER & HENRY CHAPPELL (2016)

Commissioned by the East Ranches of South Texas — a close cousin to the more famous King Ranch — this elegant jacketed-and-slipcased volume was the product of many months’ camera work by state photographer Wyman Meinzer, who had full access to every corner of the vast, historic spread.

 

Complemented by the masterful text of award-winning author Henry Chappell, the project called for careful editing and a page layout and cover that would showcase the photographer’s and writer’s top work.
