Two years in the making, the Austin photography book entitled “Austin, Texas: A Photographic Portrait” is on sale now!

While you can read about this 128 page, hardback Austin coffee table book on the About page on this blog, we all know a picture is worth a thousand words.

So, I put together this hands-on video that gives a better feel for what you can expect from the book.

As the video shows, the book is packed full of colorful photos and insightful captions for over 100 landmarks around Austin. Whether you are new to Austin or have lived here your entire life, there’s something for you in its pages.

As I mentioned in the video, you can buy the book online at BarnesAndNoble.com and Amazon.com Austin, Texas: A Photographic Portrait – Book now on Sale!.

We Austinites all like to “Keep Austin Weird” as well – BookPeople has the book but it’s not in their computer system yet. When you go into the store, you will have to search the Texana/Texas History section manually. When I went in, it was on the far shelf, next to the Texas Nature section next to “Trillin on Texas”. If you head to Barnes and Noble, my book will be in the Texas section (although it’s cheaper to buy online at BarnesAndNoble.com).

If you represent a hotel or corporation that wants to buy at least 5 books, please use the following form to inquire about a bulk order discount.

You can also order individual prints or licence photos from the book at on the photo prints page.

In closing, I would like to thank you to all of the Austinites around town that helped in the making this book about our awesome city! I could not have finished this multi-year project without you.

To stay in touch, please subscribe to this blog for more cool info about Austin and possibly future events related to the book. You can also find me on Twitter @AustinPhotoBook and @supertsai.
