San Antonio's Spanish Missions: A Portrait

Since their construction in the eighteenth century, the Spanish missions in San Antonio have held a fascination for visitors and residents alike. This elegant coffee-table volume displays more than one hundred color photographs by architectural photographer Mike Osborne. It provides a distinctive contemporary portrait of the five mission complexes, now partly restored, partly still in ruins. One, better known as the Alamo, is a memorial to its defenders in 1836. The four others comprise San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. Each section includes a rare nineteenth-century image, several previously unpublished.
