Encino Press (1963 — 1983)

Founded in 1963 by Bill and Sally Wittliff shortly after they graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, the Encino Press focused on regional material about Texas and the Southwest. After humble beginnings, Bill and Sally eventually moved the press to the Raymond-Morley House in Austin, a 19th-century Victorian designated historic landmark, where O. Henry once lived and wrote.

During its 20 years, the Encino Press won over 100 awards for its distinctive works of history, biography, and belles lettres, publishing established authors as well as taking chances on unknowns. Excellence of design and quality content make each Encino book a pleasure to own. After closing the press, Bill and Sally donated the remaining inventory to the Wittliff Collections, and we are pleased to offer them for sale.
