  5. Survivors Cover

    Survivors: A Catalog of Missouri's Remaining 19th Century County Courthouses

    $20.00

    Packed with interesting historical facts and human interest tidbits, "Survivors" pays tribute to Missouri's 19th century courthouses. Some are grandiose, others are modest, but all deserve the spotlight after more than 100 years of service. Today most of these buildings remain working places for law and administration, but face challenges ranging from accessibility issues, to expensive maintenance and security issues. The specter of being demolished is always just around the corner. Not even a building long on the National Register of Historic Places is immune from the wrecking ball. Yet every time one of these old buildings is destroyed a large part of its county history is lost forever.

    'Survivors' provides an historical review of Missouri's 19th century courthouses, along with a description of the buildings as they are today, and a contemporary color photograph of each. The book aims raise awareness of these important community assets.

  6. The Golden Lane

    The Golden Lane: How Missouri Women Gained the Vote and Changed History

    $15.00

    It was June 14, 1916, a warm, sticky Wednesday morning. The Democratic Convention would soon meet in St. Louis. Inside the Jefferson Hotel, the men ate breakfast and met with their committees. Outside the hotel, thousands of women quietly took their places along both sides of Locust Street. They stood shoulder to shoulder, each one in a dress that brushed the pavement, shading herself with a yellow parasol and wearing a yellow sash that said "Votes for Women." The all-male delegations may not have had a comfortable walk down the Golden Lane, but they were moved to add women's suffrage to the national platform. Join Margot McMillen for an accessible history of a privilege too often taken for granted.

  7. The Landscape in Black and White: Oliver Schuchard Photographs, 1967-2005

    The Landscape in Black and White: Oliver Schuchard Photographs, 1967-2005

    $38.00

    In this magnificent book, Oliver Schuchard provides more than sixty-five exquisite black-and-white photographs spanning his thirty-eight years of photography. In addition, he explains the aesthetic rationale and techniques he used in order to produce these photographs, emphasizing the profound differences between, yet necessary interdependence of, craft and content. Although Schuchard believes that craft is important, he maintains that the idea behind the photograph and the emotional content of the image are equally vital and are, in fact, functions of one another.

    The author also shares components of his life experience that he believes helped shape his development as an artist and a teacher. He chose the splendid photographs included in this book from among nearly 5,000 negatives that had been exposed all over the world, from Missouri to Maine, California, Alaska, Colorado, France, Newfoundland, and Hawaii, among many other locations. Approximately 250 negatives survived the initial review, and each of those was printed before a final decision was made on which photographs were to be featured in the book. The final choices are representative of Schuchard’s work and serve to substantiate his belief that craft, concept, and self must be fully understood and carefully melded for a good photograph to occur.
