In 2010, Jennie Jones, a well-known photographer donated some 22,000 images to the Michael Schwartz Library, Special Collections at Cleveland State University representing thirty years of her work. Arnold Berke, the Senior Contributing Editor of Preservation Magazine says "Her work is a priceless record of Cleveland's heritage of construction and design. She is a creative artist with strong individual aesthetics who has dedicated her life to sharing the beauty of Cleveland with the world."

In her introduction, Jennie Jones states: "We often hear that 'nothing ever seems so happen in Cleveland!'" This book dispels that myth with a visual record of the transformation of Cleveland's skyline with the renovation of Tower City Center and Playhouse Square, the construction of the BP building, Key Center, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Gateway and new football stadium. The first decade of this century has seen the growth of Cleveland State University, the beautification of Euclid Avenue, the expansion of the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Institute of Art, University Hospital and the Case Western Reserve Campus."

Cleveland Inside Outside is a journey full of visual surprises with stunning photographs from 1981-2011. As a commercial architectural photographer, Jennie Jones was privileged to have worked on most of the major building sites in Cleveland. With her art history and fine art background, she was able to capture the beauty, strength and complexity of large construction sites. During her travels in and around the city of Cleveland she captured many other images that speak to the beauty of our great city.

It is a beautiful coffee table book that truly celebrates the best of Cleveland.
