Two new books were recently released that cover Detroit art and architecture.
Great Architecture of Michigan contains 150 photographs by Balthazar Korab for what the MAF feels are architecturally significant buildings from around the state. John Gallagher, Architecture Critic from the Detroit Free Press, wrote the accompanying text. Korab’s photographs are wonderful as usual. AIA Michigan has put together a nice site where you can browse the photos.
Art in Detroit Public Places details the locations and story behind 150 of Detroit’s vast collection of public art.
Both books are available at Wayne State Press (Even though I’m not an affiliate, I’ve provided easy links for you!)
If you’re really excited about these books and would like to get them autographed, consider traveling to The Book Beat in Oak Park this Sunday. The authors will be available from 2:00 – 3:30 to autograph and discuss their books.
