Sometimes pictures are worth a thousand words. The following images are from the outstanding book Passions in Print: Private Press Artistry in New Mexico by Pamela S. Smith with Richard Polese. Street scene from Southwest Writer Harvey Fergusson, Press of the Palace of the Governors. Cowboy postcard by Vancil Foster.
