“Architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci’s work is so widespread around Detroit, you’re likely familiar with it even if you’ve never heard of the man.
Consider: The stern Mayan gods at the entrance to the Guardian Building. The bears on the Detroit Zoo’s Horace M. Rackham Memorial Fountain. The time-worn medallion of a winged Mercury sunk flush in the marble floor of the Fisher Building lobby.
A new book from architectural historian and photographer Dale A. Carlson with Einar E. Kvaran, “Corrado Parducci: A Field Guide to Detroit’s Architectural Sculptor,” offers an encyclopedic listing of work by the Tuscan-born master, whose reputation has soared in recent years with the uptick in enthusiasm for all things Detroit.” —The Detroit News
