Flavorpill included Building Stories in its Fall 2012 Books Forecast!
One of our favorite graphic novelists of all time, Ware’s newest effort is what Publishers Weekly calls “one of the year’s best arguments for the survival of print.” Indeed, Ware’s gorgeous, complex treasure chest of a book — actually 14 separate printed works that can be read in any order — tells the complex, interconnected story of a lonely woman and the building she inhabits, and demands to be handled with care, each component studied and cradled and touched. You might be touched, too.

At Comics: Philosophy and Practice this weekend in Chicago, Chris Ware revealed more details about his highly-anticipated latest project, Building Stories, coming from Pantheon this October. As attendee Kathleen Dunley put it, Building Stories is “many little books in a beautiful box.”
Stay tuned, we can’t wait to share more of this exciting new graphic novel with you.
“Chris Ware’s BUILDING STORIES is the rarest kind of brilliance; it is simultaneously heartbreaking, hilarious, shockingly intimate and deeply insightful. There isn’t a graphic artist alive or dead who has used the form this wonderfully to convey the passage of time, loneliness, longing, frustration or bliss. It is the reader’s choice where and how to begin this monumental work — the only regret you will have in starting it is knowing that it will end.”
- J.J. Abrams
