AbstractHistoryArchive Description

There's a Russian bride, a war veteran, a Reverend, a cowboy - all little Hitlers - and an Austrian Bentwood chair. See them live and see them die. In the end only one will be left standing: simple, sturdy, lasting ... Because no matter how bad people get, there's always death; sudden or slow - a testimony to the poor craftsmanship of mankind. sometimes a chair is more lasting than us all. - (synopsis, Collection #6 (2006) p. 41)
