Noteworthy Reviews

“Larry Broutman, a Chicago-based photographer, has traveled over the world in his quest for travel and wildlife images. He has concentrated on remote tribal cultures and African wildlife. And now he has spent four years in research, location scouting and photography of 250 of Chicago’s public monuments…Broutman’s book is a beautifully photographed and produced full-color tribute to more than 250 public monuments located in Chicago’s parks, streets, storefronts, bridges, and cemeteries. Many were created by acclaimed sculptors from the past two centuries. The book includes 15 pages of 3D photos that you can view with 3D glasses tucked inside the front cover. (And they work too.)”
—Nancy Bishop, Third Coast Review

“Larry Broutman’s impressive background and education is truly an inspiration to others.”
—Karla Sullivan, Lifetime Chicago

“"Chicago Monumental" is 215 pages of beautiful photography and narrative about many Chicago monuments, both the well known and the lesser known, and even includes 3D glasses for viewing the last section! The bonus is that all of the proceeds benefit the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Access Living, which makes it not only a great gift but also a 'feel good' gift!”
