Dead Men Cooking

Back Download

Addressed to important decision-makers worldwide, “Dead Men Cooking” is a plea for the abolition of the death penalty. The orange cover references the American prison uniform, while the book is held together with a belt similar to the kind used on the electric chair. Complemented by numerous photographs and illustrations, this “cookbook” presents 40 real “last meals” based on what inmates on death row in US prisons wished to eat on their last day.
