AFTER AN EXTRAORDINARY half-decade for H-Town — multiple once-in-a-lifetime weather events, a World Series win, an epic pandemic and much more — independently published, proudly all-local Houston CityBook marks five years in print this fall. With the gracious support of Deutsch Fine Jewelry, which has appeared as an advertiser on the back cover of every single issue, we look back at our take on the glamour, grit, style and substance of the most fascinating city in America.
