This is the only book on courtroom art that has ever been published. Church is a well-kwn courtroom artist. This quirky giftbook will be a great gift for the lawyer in your life or just those who want a birds eye view of previously hidden proceedings. Courtroom sketch artists have been documenting trials for the media since the mid-twentieth century, and artist is more revered or accomplished in the genre than Marilyn Church. As the primary sketch artist for the New York Times and ABC News , Church has covered many of our most infamous trials, from Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, and from O. J. Simpson to Martha Stewart. She's also an accomplished fine artist whose work has been shown at galleries around the nation, and whose courtroom art sketches sell for anywhere from $4,000 to $18,500. Part quirky giftbook, part fascinating look at this unique art genre, and part historical look at some of the highest-profile trials of the last 30 years, Sketches of Justice will be a terrific coffee table artbook/giftbook for lawyers, judges, and anyone else involved with or fascinated by our criminal justice system, t to mention fans of Court TV. The book will focus on 30 sensational trials, with brief summaries of the trials by journalist Lou Young and caption commentary from Church throughout. Each case features 1 to 3 portraits by Church. The book also highlights a rogue's gallery with illustrations of celebrities in the courtroom.
