Why Choose Us?

Guardians of Detroit is a first-of-its-kind project to explore, explain, and document Detroit's amazing collection of architectural sculpture on a building-by-building basis. Using telephoto photography, building details that are barely visible to the naked eye are brought down from the heights and made available for up-close appreciation. In some cases, ornamental elements that have been hidden from public view for more than 100 years have been brought to light. Whether you choose to purchase the 336-page hardcover book with 770 original photos, or the coloring book with 22 original illustrations based on those photos, or both, Guardians of Detroit provides a unique look at the often-hidden gems of one of the the Midwest's greatest cities.
