Building Stories by Chris Ware

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

Packaged in a sturdy box, Chris Ware's magnificent Building Stories consists of fourteen individually bound books, booklets and pamphlets. Each depicting one moment in a nameless one-legged narrator's life, the books of Building Stories join together to create a bittersweet and relatable rendering of a lonely woman growing into adulthood. This is comics in their highest form, and possibly the most spectacular thing you'll ever find in a bookstore.
