About Building Stories
Building Stories is an award-winning graphic novel by American cartoonist Chris Ware. The unconventional work is made up of fourteen printed works—cloth-bound books, newspapers, magazines, broadsheets, and flip books—packaged in a boxed set. The work took a decade to complete, and was published by Pantheon Books. The intricate, multilayered stories pivot around an unnamed female protagonist living in Chicago with a missing lower leg. 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. Whether you’re feeling alone by yourself or alone with someone else, the book is sure to sympathize with the crushing sense of life wasted, opportunities missed and creative dreams dashed.
