Shiv features eleven prisoner-made weapons from the collection of Chris Kasabach and Vanessa Sica. These shivs were confiscated in the 1980s at Rahway (today known as East Jersey State Prison), a notorious maximum-security home to over 1,500 inmates serving 25 years to life. A short essay and list of materials follow the shiv photos (shown at their actual size). Hidden along the spine is the story of Thomas Doswell, a man set free from prison after 20 years for a rape he did not commit. 8.25 x 11.25 inches, 16 pages, with letterpressed slipcover.
