Certain books have a gravity just by their presence, and things are just a bit more weighty around the office since we got our advance copies of Janet Hamlin's Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals 2006-2013. Hamlin’s artwork is the only official visual record of the legal hearings of suspected terrorists, including those accused of being responsible for the attacks on 9/11, taking place at the offshore military installation that houses the world’s most controversial prison. These drawings are history, and this is the first time they have been published together, along with commentary and background from Hamlin and others.

Designed by Jacob Covey and covered in prison-jumpsuit orange, this important and essential book is due out in October and can be pre-ordered here.
