Reviews

A companion to the current exhibition at Houston's Museum of Fine Arts, Texas Flags: 1836-1945, Texas Flags is a lushly illustrated record of the banners that have united and galvanized the citizens of the Lone Star State. From the Virgin of Guadalupe banner of the Mexican independence leader Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla to the Lone Star flags of the Republic years and the battle flags of Confederate units, the book documents the unusually rich history of the Texas pennants. The text by curator Robert Mayberry Jr., director of the Historical Flags of Texas Project, offers an engrossing overview of the state's history.
