A big, beautiful, love letter to Milwaukee and the jewel-box Pfister! Gorgeous photos, engaging text. Would make an incredible gift.

The Pfister Hotel is an iconic landmark in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Designed by German immigrant Guido Pfister and built in 1893 to replace Milwaukee's premier luxury hotel which had been destroyed by a fire some years earlier, this grand palace still remains one of the foremost hotels in the United States today. The Pfister has been host to countless U.S. presidents, dignitaries, show business luminaries, and professional athletes over the years, as well as tourists from around the world who come to the Pfister to marvel at its lavish, ornate interiors. Author Thomas J. Jordan and photographer Jay W. Filter have written a marvelous tribute to this "Palace of the People" in a new book titled THE HISTORY, ART, AND IMAGERY OF THE PFISTER HOTEL.

Jordan's well-written text examines the fascinating history of this hotel in great detail, but it is clearly the masterful photography by Jay W. Filter that is the main reason for this book's appeal and success. Filter has managed to photograph the hotel's grand interiors with such rare artistry that each turn of the page evokes gasps of wonder and amazement. Whether he is photographing a wideshot of the Imperial Ballroom or a closeup of something as seemingly mundane as a gold-plated bathroom fixture, each photograph is a true work of art. Filter clearly approached this project as a labor of love, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.

Whether you are a fan of history, architecture, or interior design -- or if you simply enjoy browsing through photographs guaranteed to take your breath away -- this book is a definite "must-have." Highly recommended!
