I Fought the Law: Photographs by Olivia Locher of the Strangest Laws from Each of the 50 States

$16.95
Strange, outdated laws from each of the 50 U.S. states--some overturned, some still on the books, and some merely the stuff of legends--are depicted with sly wit by Olivia Locher. Incisive, ironic, and gorgeous, these images will appeal to art buffs and trivia fans alike. A foreword from American poet Kenneth Goldsmith and an interview with the artist by Eric Shiner, former director of the Andy Warhol Museum, contextualize rising-star Locher's photography. From serving wine in teacups in Kansas to licking a toad in Kentucky or perming a child's hair in Nebraska, breaking the law has never looked so good.
