Acclaimed artist Robert Priseman has assembled some of his drawings of execution chambers with essays on the death penalty into a new book entitled “No Human Way to Kill.” The essays include the story of a mother whose daughter was murdered, a death row inmate’s diary, and an interview with Jim Willett, former warden of the prison where Texas executions are held. Death penalty attorney Clive Stafford Smith writes in review, “The etchings and accounts offer up a strange and original contemplation on a subject which stretches back far, far too long.”
