Detroit: The Dream Is Now : Detroit: A city that, at the height of its prosperity, was referred to as the "Paris of the West," but always remained deeply American. In recent years, stories of the city have evoked images of Detroit's financial and physical decline. But few have seen what the city really looks like today. A powerful antidote to misconceptions about the burgeoning metropolis, Detroit: The Dream Is Now documents the city's rebuilding and resurgence by exploring its rich industrial past while giving voice to the dynamic communities that will make up its future.
Throughout this stunning book, photographer Michel Arnaud aims his lens at the emergent creative enterprises and new developments taking hold in the vibrant city. Each section depicts the flourishing art, food, and design scenes alongside the city's historic architecture and neighborhoods - all accompanied by interviews and portraits of resident entrepreneurs, artists, and makers. Essays by local insiders Matthew Clayson, Jennifer A. Conlin, Sarah F Cox, and Lynn Crawford offer perspectives on the dynamic changes taking place.

This book weaves a compelling story of an American city in flux, and of the astonishing resilience of its citizens.
