Why Burning Sled?
We get this question a lot.
A publisher needs a name. When it was time to choose ours, we thought of Rosebud, which was already taken. We've long admired the Kenosha-born filmaker, actor, director, visual artist and magician Orson Welles--particularly his great cinematic debut, Citizen Kane. The final tableux of the film consists of a tracking shot of Charles Foster Kane's effects--thousands of valuable works of art collected from around the globe--following his demise. What, a reporter asks, were Kane's last words? As "Rosebud" is whispered, a glimpse is caught of Charlie Kane's childhood sled being burned in a furnace; the effect is that of a dream's cremation.
