As the principal courtroom sketch artist for the New York Times and WABC in New York, Marilyn Church covered many of America’s most infamous trials, from the downfall of John Gotti to the trial of would-be presidential assassin John Hinckley; from the conviction of Martha Stewart to the Sean “Puffy” Combs weapons possession trial.
In The Art of Justice, Marilyn Church takes readers into the courtroom for an insider’s view of thirty sensational cases. Experience the story behind the dramatic headlines in the legal battles of subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz, Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher, preppie murderer Robert Chambers, David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz, the bizarre child custody war between Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, and many, many others.
In addition to more than one hundred brilliant full-color reproductions of Church’s artwork, The Art of Justice also includes compelling trial summaries by noted television journalist Lou Young and a Celebrity Gallery depicting the courtroom appearances of Mick Jagger, Yoko Ono, Paul Newman, Caroline Kennedy, Donald Trump, and a host of other luminaries.
Part artistic celebration, part cultural history, The Art of Justice is the perfect addition to any lawyer’s library and essential reading for true-crime fans everywhere!
