Building Stories by Chris Ware
The new Chris Ware book is on my list. It's a novel with moving parts, so to speak: a box of books, pamphlets and posters that tell the story of the inhabitants of a building. I don't want to read too much about this so I can have the joy of discovery myself. The whole thing looks fantastic. Below, literally, the table of contents as posted on Amazon:
The Adam Baumgold gallery in Manhattan also has an exhibit of original drawings for the book. And, most incredibly, a limited edition of the building to construct yourself. It looks like sturdy card stock.
