Alan Campbell The Twelve Chairs Print

Alan Campbell has a new print and it's based on the classic soviet satirical novel by IIf and Petrov

The novel follows a diamond hunt sparked by Kisa's mother law confessing on her deathbed that the family jewels were hidden from being seized by the soviets in one of the twelve dining room chairs, the chairs were seized but the diamonds were not found.
Kisa sets out to find the chairs and the diamonds, quickly con-man Ostap Bender learns of the enterprise and pushes his way in, providing the street smarts to track down the chairs.

The book has been adapted to film in at least 20 occasions, including a 1970's version by Mel Brooks, an Italian version staring Sharon Tate which was her final role. Alan liked this 1971 soviet version which is up on Youtube with english subtitles, Also the chairs from this film were the inspiration for my drawn chairs in the print
