We are raising money in order to pay photographers for their work, ensuring we make the most beautiful book possible of one of Detroit’s most beautiful places. We have all sorts of nifty donation incentives for you, from books, T-shirts and vintage Detroit postcards to life jackets from the Boblo boats, bricks from the Guardian Building, old Vernors memorabilia and actual used train tickets from Michigan Central Station. All donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. You can learn more about the project and help make it happen by clicking right here.
