Signs of Marfa

Vilis Inde presents photographs that portray Marfa as it once was and as it is today.

There are two types of signs relating to Marfa: the natural beauty of the surroundings and the manmade signs. "Signs of Marfa" presents both, although the primary focus is on the manmade signs. Many have weathered and are hardly visible, while others are fresh and announce yet another new venture. Combined, the 175 photographs in the book summarizes the history and people of Marfa and shows what it has become.

"Signs of Marfa" is available in either hardcover or softcover from This site allows you to take a look at the first 15 pages of the 80 page book.

"Signs of Marfa" is a great book if you love Marfa, TX. I know that Vilis Inde says that these are not "fine art" photographs, but they are great. He & his partner will be selling some of the photos at a new shop that will open next to their current inde/jacobs gallery. Look for it at Thanksgiving.
