Chris Ware's Building Stories

Although I live in downtown Chicago, I take the green line west each day to Oak Park for work. After about a year and a half at the company, I feel like I've gotten to know the community pretty well. One thing I can definitely say about Oak Park is they are really proud of their fellow Oak Parkers' achievements.

Which is why I was not surprised to see a copy of Oak Park resident Chris Ware's latest graphic novel/masterpiece, "Building Stories" in the office today.

I didn't have time to really read through any of it (I was at work after all) but I'm definitely impressed with what I saw and grabbed a few photos to share.

I've never been very into graphic novels or comics of any kind but I'm definitely intrigued by "Building Stories" and it's celebration of print. This concept definitely would not be as strong digitally and I think it's just another reminder that print and digital can exist side-by-side peacefully.

Since I haven't read anything contained in the box, I can't very well review it, but I did find some interesting review online, including one from the The Globe and Mail.

If you get your hands on a copy/box/majestic thing, let me know what you think.

Plus, another pro to print & con of digital from a year ago.
And I'm still in love with this cover by Paul Sahre.
