Detroit is home to an amazing collection of architectural sculpture—a host of gargoyles, grotesques, and other silent guardians that watch over the city from high above its streets and sidewalks, often unnoticed or ignored by the people passing below. This coloring book documents some of these incredible features, all found in a city that began as a small frontier fort and quickly grew to become a major metropolis and industrial titan.
