Announcing ‘Navasota is Beautiful’ Art Book

Navasota Artists-in-Residence Apinya Srikhwanthong and Rebecca Dias are currently collaborating to produce Navasota is Beautiful, an easy-to-read storybook and art book about Navasota, Texas. Navasota is Beautiful will be written by Rebecca Dias and illustrated by Apinya Srikhwanthong and Rebecca Dias, with several local artist contributions. The anticipated release date is August 2019.


Apinya and Rebecca are currently accepting Sponsors to support the initial book printing cost. For more information, check out our Sponsorship Link. Thank you for your support, Navasota!


Rebecca says the following about the project:

“Apinya and I have each stayed in Navasota for almost a year now. We wanted to create something that could be a lasting gift to the community, as a thank you for our time here as artists-in-residence. Staying in a historical home, and living here, I have come to appreciate the many facets of Navasota’s history, and I have observed how Navasota is growing and changing too. We hope that this picture book can help to inspire newcomers and long-time Navasota residents alike to appreciate the history, culture and beauty of Navasota, Texas, which Apinya and I have each found in coming here. It is a book that I hope children, families and adults will be able to enjoy for many years to come.”
