WORD | Detroit 1968

It seems like Detroit is at the forefront of the collective American cultural mind these days. Between Enrico Natali's photo essay Detroit 1968, the new best-selling book Detroit: An American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff, and the rebirth of the Shinola brand, one can start to put the pieces together of Detroit's vibrant past, ruinous present, and (somewhat) hopeful future. I landed on this book on Friday and can't stop looking through the photos, which show Detroit in an eerily bullish place. The most capitvating photos aren't shown here on the blog, but I did pull some for the sake of style.
