I have a secret.

I love true crime! Charles Manson was my gateway murderer. I remember his scary visage on magazines when I was a barely sentient child. The SVA Library, primarily an art and design collection, does have several books related to true cirme. 

Scene of the Crime






















Shots in the Dark



True Crime Assassination


Least Wanted: a century of American Mugshots


Another related topic that facinates me is feral children. Someone had to abandon these kids!

Savage Girls and Wild Boys


Encounters with Wild Children


The Forbidden Experiment: the story of the Wild Boy of Aveyron


There are all sort of unexpected things to find in the SVA Library that will satisfy everyone's esoteric interest.
Happy reading!
