MSP Book

AMERICA’S BLOODIEST 47 ACRES  Inside the Missouri State Penitentiary                    

This beautifully designed fine art photography book features the historic Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City, Missouri.  Photographer Michael Schlueter takes us on a visual journey deep inside the walls of this incredible institution; the oldest penitentiary west of the Mississippi River, 100 years older than Alcatraz.  Evocative images of crumbling interiors, haunting scenes of cell blocks, and prisoner artwork provide an intimate view of one of Missouri’s most famous landmarks.  Historical highlights of MSP, accompanied by a foreword from former warden Michael Groose, this book is sure to be enjoyed by those who appreciate the rich history of Missouri and share the photographer’s fascination with abandoned places.
