Exquisite Corpse


“Kiln-dried oak of first quality,
free from knots, shakes and
other imperfections, and to have
a straight and uniform grain and
to be of uniform color…to
be finished smooth and clean, given
two coats of the best-grade furniture
varnish.” — These are technical
specifications for an
Electric Chair.
