This great collection of the word "Texas" from all around the state as photographed by our friend, Rick Vanderpool. After moving to Texas in 1994, he began a series of trips that would total over 20,000 miles and 54 days to visit all 254 counties in Texas. While he photographed anything else that caught his interest – from road kill and wildflowers, to grand views and tumbleweeds – he was mostly looking for Texas; simply the word, in all its infinite variety of size, shape, color, style and material. Anywhere, on anything, and with character – as in worn, weathered, carved, etched, painted, stitched, tooled, scrawled, scratched or sculpted. From movie marquis, t-shirts and belt buckles - to barns, ball caps and tattoos. Selecting from the more than 1,000 images, this unique graphic representation titled "Looking for Texas" was born. Recognized by the Texas Tourism Department for its historical significance.
