In the latest addition to his series, Munger combines anthropology and history with the aesthetics and collection of chess pieces. Through illustrations and descriptions of 89 ethnic chess sets, Munger depicts the cultures found in 22 countries and as many islands in the Pacific, spanning 17 centuries.

PoKempner, AB'73, taken at Theresa's and other neighborhood Chicago blues clubs since the late '60s.
