Featured image is reproduced from Enrico Natali: Detroit 1968, one of our favorite books of the year, and a ubiquitous critic's choice. Time magazine's Laura Berman writes, "Looking at the photographs in 2013, it's impossible not to see a city clearly on the cusp. The faces are optimistic–and just a little bit wary. The people of Natali's Detroit are young, mostly white, and–in those pre-high fructose syrup days—noticeably thinner than their modern counterparts. From the ossified society matrons in their ball gowns, to the young career women in their bouffant hairdos and nylon stockings, there's a sense of unease in each frame, a feeling you can't quite name."
