About The Work

The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art, the first full-size, full-color collection of courtroom art, has become one of the most-honored books published in America in recent years, winning twelve awards for academic and independent books. It includes more than 140 drawings from courtrooms by five of the most prominent illustrators working in the field, including Elizabeth Williams, who co-authored the book for the CUNY Journalism Press along with renowned true-crime writer Sue Russell, whose text takes readers behind the scenes of some of the most significant trials of the past half-century, from the Black Panthers to Charles Manson to Michael Jackson to Bernie Madoff.
