BOOK TOWER Building Detroit picture photo art print photography for sale. The Detroit Book Tower Building was a project begun in about 1916 and completed in 1930. This DETROIT BOOK TOWER color photograph was made from an ORIGINAL BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO THAT HAS BEEN HAND-COLORED by artist/photogrpher Mr. Jan Kaulins. The Book Tower is an excellent example of Italian Renaissance architecture. It was the tallest skyscraper building in Detroit until replaced by the taller Penobscot Building in 1929. This Limestone faced Detroit skyscraper building has been beautifully renovated and currently houses retail and office space. It is one of the more promiment and architecturally unique buildings in the skyline of downtown Detroit. In the foreground of this Book Tower photo we can see Rick's Gaslight Room tavern at the corner of Bagley. This artistic Book Tower photo was left mostly black and white with the hand-coloring done just on the dramatic cloud filled sky. The Book Tower is a fine example of using historic vintage structures to serve contemporary functions.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
