About The Book
"VESTIL #1, RANGER - February 17, 1920"

Print Number One in the C. A. Warner Memorial Series of Historic Texas Oil Field Images

This image is featured on the cover of our best-selling book, Texas Oil & Gas Since 1543. It captures the exact moment the well came in, before the first drops even hit the ground. The two figures in the foreground are what make this image iconic. They look up in awe not only at what this event is, but all that it represents.

This is a high quality Giclee print on old-world style heavy weight, acid free, cold press watercolor paper.  Each one is individually hand-numbered. The 'felt finished' surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original image vividly, beautifully, and exactly. These inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your print in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation as a family heirloom as it is the day it ships.

All you need to do choose any standard 18 by 24 inch frame and mat from your local frame shop. Like all prints in this series, it is a Limited Edition of only 254 hand-numbered, one for each county in Texas. Get yours before they're gone.

** The first 50 copies of print Number One (Vestil #1, Ranger) and print Number  Two (Tripping Pipe - Corsicana) were produced on a very special triple primed canvas. Unfortunately that material has become difficult to source consistently. We experimented with other canvases, but none took the ink nearly as well. This is why all further prints in this series will be on old-world style heavy weight, acid free, cold pressed watercolor paper. This produced test prints on this paper before we launched the series last summer and slightly more people actually preferred it to the canvas. We went with the canvas mostly because our Art Director has a profound love for canvas. We guarantee you will love fine art look that the new watercolor paper gives these images. Several of you have told us you'd prefer to have them without a mat so you can choose one that matches your frame and decor. Your wish is our command!
