Graphics/Fine Arts Press is pleased to offer to our friends and to the reading public well-researched and documented information of interest to historians with both national and regional focus, as well as to living history interpreters and reenactors.

We are interested in primary documentation, runaway ads, journals, diaries, inventories and account books; historic clothing and gear; music of the period, foodways; importation; the lives of the common soldier and his family; agriculture and useful wild plants; dyeing and medicinals; settlement and everyday life in towns and cities and on the frontier--wherever that may have been found, from the East coast westward. The relationships between the Native Americans and the French, German, English, Irish and Scottish settlers are of special concern. We are interested, as well, in women's lives and occupations, from the 16th to the early 19th centuries.

Graphics/Fine Arts has been in business for 20 years, and as a press since 1993, publishing information on the unusual as well as the common--as long as it is based on the primary documents.

She is a contributing editor of three magazines and has written and illustrated 27 books, most on art and natural history, and five published by her own small press on subjects of interest to the history-loving community.

She has also published the very popular Recreating the American Longhunter by Joseph Ruckman and the new book by Mara Riley that is rapidly carving a niche for itself, Whatever Shall I Wear; A Guide to Assembling a Woman's Basic 18th Century Wardrobe.

Herself a reenactor, she enjoys historic scouts as well as events at such sites as Missouri's Fort Osage National Historic Site; New York's Fort Ticonderoga; Historic Mansker's Station, Tennessee; Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia; and the Battle Road event at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts.

She was "listowner" for three historical discussion groups, Revlist, Fort Osage, and Middle Waters Group.
