*** Now I Sit Me Down by Witold Rybczinski

Be patient with Now I Sit Me Down: From Klismos to Plastic Chair: A Natural History, as the first few chapters seem to need a little time to (ahem!) settle down. And you will be rewarded, for the author deftly guides us through chairs of all styles, from Antiquity to now and across continents. There are many hand drawn illustrations but sadly not all chairs are shown, and none of the paintings that are discussed in the book either. Highly recommended despite these nits!
