It’s true that buying a piece of land is like a long-term relationship. The buildings on it may change, as well as the owners, and after many years you are left with something beautiful but different. Haven’t you ever wanted to capture the history and essence of a home or ranch at one point in time? Now you can.

Sure, there are many monographs that make for good coffee table books, but the books that John Bigelow Taylor, a photographer, and his wife, Diane Dubler, create are a category in their own.

The couple has produced five different books thus far, one of them a tome on Dog Leg Ranch in Bandera, a property just outside San Antonio owned by Jane Stieren and Bill Lacy. They ordered 200 copies of the book as gifts for family and friends.
