Willard F. Clark was a printmaker and artist who greatly shaped the way the rest of the world views old-time Santa Fe, New Mexico. Born in 1910 in Boston, he grew up in Argentina, and studied art during the summers in New York City at Grand Central Station Art School and the Hawthorn Art Academy. In 1928, on his way to California, he stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico and fell in love with the majestic landscape of the American Southwest. There he started a small print shop and taught himself the craft of printing, cutting his own woodblocks, setting type, and binding small books. Willard Clark developed a graphic style that came to represent early Twentieth-century Santa Fe to many around the world. This collectible reprint of Recuerdos de Santa Fe, 1928-1943 includes 48 beautiful and original etchings, along with reminiscences from author Willard Clark that capture the old-time feel of Santa Fe, New Mexico. First produced as a limited edition book with 100 signed copies, this edition includes an introduction by the artist's grandson Kevin Ryan. Remembering Santa Fe makes a perfect gift for those who love Southwest art, an ideal memento of a Santa Fe vacation, or a charming souvenir for anyone interested in the art and artists of the West.

Exchange Hotel/La Fonda (East San Francisco Street at Old Santa Fe Trail) A hostelry, known by a succession of names, has sat across from the southeast corner of the Plaza at the end of the Santa Fe Trail for as long as anyone can remember. Travelers in 1849 describe dining well and finding "comfortable drink" at the United States (or U.S.) Hotel. By 1871 the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper described completion of recent improvements to the "Exchange Hotel or 'Fonda' of this city," which was now "unquestionably one of the most commodious and comfortable hotels in the West" with the best management this side of the Mississippi (top right). In 1886, when the establishment was called the Hotel Capital (the same year a hotel by the same name occupied the corner diagonally across the Plaza; see #31), it made no secret of its gambling room that appeared prominently on that year's city's insurance map.
