Rule 53: Capturing Hippies, Spies, Politicians, and Murderers in An American Courtroom -
Manufacturer: Andy Austin
Rule 53: Capturing Hippies, Spies, Politicians, and Murderers in An American Courtroom

In 1969 artist Andy Austin pitched herself as a substitute for an ABC TV courtroom sketch artist who didn’t show up to cover the Chicago 7 trial, thus beginning her career of more than 40 years of covering some of the city’s and the nation’s most notorious trials—all documented in this compilation. Rule 53 dictates no cameras allowed in the courtroom, so mobsters, politicians, spies, terrorists, gang members, and serial killers on trial leave their mark on history through the artist's renderings. This engaging memoir and firsthand account of how the drama of the courtroom stage really unfolds will delight history and true crime buffs, court watchers, and anyone fascinated by the nuances of character only an artist can capture.

Publisher: Lake Claremont Press, 2008
