I Fought the Law Summary

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

Strange, outdated laws from each of the 50 U.S. states-some overturned, some still on the books, and some merely the stuff of legends-are depicted with sly wit by Olivia Locher.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.

I Fought the Law Reviews

"Did you know that in Alabama, it's illegal to carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket? Or that in Hawaii, you can be arrested for putting a coin in your ear? And that in Kentucky, it's illegal to lick a toad? Olivia Locher explores where these strange laws come from in her tongue-in-cheek book I Fought The Law. It's illustrated with gorgeous photos - breaking the law has never looked so good." Daily Mail
