Famous Sculptor Hails from Crandall


“Readin’ Time” (Azle, Texas) is one of more than 150 bronze sculptures created by the late Bill Bond, born October 1, 1923, in Crandall, the son of William and Nonnie Bond. Bill Bond was an illustrator and advertising professional (practicing in Dallas), but is most remembered as a sculptor. His sculptures cover western, historic, religious, and sports subjects and are located all over the country. Bond often brought humor to his pieces and was quoted to say, “I’m trying to take you to the barely perceptive edge of humor — to a point where you laugh, but are hard-put to explain why.” He died in 2016 at home in Kerrville
