    Justice has been portrayed as a blindfolded woman holding scales since ancient Babylon. In Representing Justice the authors present more than 220 images (many of them in colour) to illustrate the evolution of this iconography alongside the changing architecture and decoration of court buildings. They argue that modern courthouse design reflects a problematic change in the relationship between democracy, justice and law, with the move from public to private adjudication jeopardizing the traditional promise of 'equal justice for all'.
