'Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson'

'Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson' draws portrait of psychopath as a young man

Jeff Guinn's new book details how record producer's snub of aspiring musician sparked Manson's bloody rage, which led to slaughter of Sharon Tate

Illustrations from the Manson trial, never before published, will be in the upcoming book
The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art

Below is the illustration of Manson's arraignment with Susan Atkins drawn by Bill Robles, almost 44 years ago. The judge in this drawing, is Laurence Rittenband. He was the same judge who handled the Roman Polanski sexual offense case, that lead  Polanski to flee the US in 1978 and never return. That case is also in the upcoming book.
