Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Jackson. McMartin Preschool. Heidi Fleiss. Richard “The Night Stalker” Ramirez. The Menendez Brothers. Robert Blake. Courtney Love. Winona Ryder. Rodney King. O.J. Name a high-profile trial over the past 25 years and Mona Shafer Edwards was most likely seated in the courtroom with her markers, pens, and large pad of vellum paper, illustrating the proceedings. Edwards courtroom illustrations are beautiful pieces of art that capture the most poignant and thrilling moments of major celebrity trials in stunning bursts of color. Captured! not only includes Edwards brilliant artwork, but her fascinating insider observations on the trials as well. Each case features a recap of all of the highlights and lowlights of the trial, a summary of the verdict, and an overview of both the participants and the publics reaction to the final decision.

Spellbinding courtroom illustrations of the most celebrated and talked about trials of the last 25 years are coupled with insider observations and case summaries in this unique collection of poignant moments from infamous cases.
