Building Stories Book by Chris Ware
Chicago author & illustrator Chris Ware's Building Stories consists of 14 individual items (booklets, magazines, newspapers, pamphlets) encased in graphic box.
With the increasing electronic incorporeality of existence, sometimes it’s reassuring—perhaps even necessary—to have something to hold on to. Thus within this colorful keepsake box the purchaser will find a fully-apportioned variety of reading material ready to address virtually any imaginable artistic or poetic taste, from the corrosive sarcasm of youth to the sickening earnestness of maturity—while discovering a protagonist wondering if she’ll ever move from the rented close quarters of lonely young adulthood to the mortgaged expanse of love and marriage. - Pantheon
