"A document of life lived in the center of hell." --Sports Illustrated "A shocking, savage and brilliant indictment of racial injustice and the inhumanity of the prison." --Globe and Mail Rubin "Hurricane" Carter was riding a wave of success. The survivor of a difficult youth, he rose to become a top contender for the middleweight boxing crown. But his career crashed to a halt on May 26, 1967, when he and another man were found guilty of the murder of three white people and sentenced to three consecutive life terms. Written from prison and first published in 1974, The Sixteenth Round chronicles Hurricane's journey from the ring to solitary confinement. The book was his cry for help to the public, an attempt to set the record straight and force a new trial. Bob Dylan wrote his classic anthem "Hurricane" about his struggle, and Muhammad Ali and thousands of others took up his cause. The power of Carter's voice, as well as his ironic humor, makes this an eloquent, soul-stirring account of a remarkable life. Rubin "Hurricane" Carter was released from prison in 1988. Former chair and CEO of Canada's Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted and, since 2005, CEO of Innocence International, Dr. Carter is the author of Eye of the Hurricane: My Path from Darkness to Freedom. His life has been the subject of three books and a major motion picture, The Hurricane, starring Denzel Washington. The recipient of honorary doctor of law degrees from Griffith University, Australia, and York University, Toronto, Dr. Carter lives in Toronto.

At the intersection of photography, art, and graphic design, Sarah Illenberger creates vivid imagesthat make stories come to life. The visual language of Sarah Illenberger is extremely effective at translating content, data, and ideas into vivid, often humorous images. Whether big or small, abstract or complex, the subjects and problems of our times are pointedly depicted by this renowned illustrator and designer in concise visual forms. The conceptual strength, descriptive intensity, and spatial finesse of her style make her work particularly attractive for international magazines that are looking for a catchy and entertaining way to illustrate their articles. Meticulously created with analog handicraft using simple materials and household items such as paper, food, textiles, and wood, Illenberger's richly detailed work opens up new perspectives on seemingly familiar, iconographically-charged forms and content. She expertly avoids imbuing her materials and subjects with artificial significance or forcing a meaning upon them. Instead, Illenberger's penetrating creative eye reveals their true essence--one that has usually remained hidden just under the surface from our fleeting and routine everyday glances. Sarah Illenberger is the first monograph of the Berlin-based artist's work. In addition to commissioned designs for international magazines and brands such as Vanity Fair, Time Magazine, Suddeutsche Zeitung, Wallpaper, and Nike, it also includes a selection of current personal projects."
