The Detroit area boasts many fine examples of stained glass representing a variety of periods and styles. The European stained glass collection at teh Detroit Institute of Arts ranks amongst the most important in the United States. Churches and synagogues contain panels from notable designsers and studios, and exquisite glass can also be found in many public and private buildings like the Detroit Public Library, Cranbrook House, the Guardian Building, and the David Whitney, Jr., house.

Discovering Stained Glass in Detroit contains sixty examples of the area's stained glass treasures, each stunningly presented in full color. Author Nola Huse Tutag accompanies each illustration with an explanatory text. Line drawings illustrate the buildings where the panels are located. The windows represent works by designers such as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Charles J. Connick, Frank Lloyd Wright, Henry Matisse, as well as those from European and American studios.
