This book is a catalog of an exhibit at the Akron Art Museum showing the photographs of Detroit's decay. A third of the city is now vacant, with grassy fields and buildings falling apart. I saw the exhibit at the museum and liked it so much I bought the book. These are excellent photos that show what is going on from a lot of different angles. Sometimes it is showing the remains of something artistic, and other times scenes of collapse. There are also a few pictures of extant buildings. In this category I like the pictures of the commodores of the Polish Yacht Club.The only reason I gave the book four stars is that the pictures were much more impressive enlarged at the museum, but this is still a great, but melancholy book.
