Building Stories is lovely, and not just for Chris Ware's amazing artistic eye. Of course Ware is the poster boy for graphic design geeks, but he's also a great writer of literature. The women in Building Stories are struggling, and while this is a bit of a somber work, the artistry of story and illustration make it enthralling. Also, and awesomely, one of the storytellers living in the building is a bee. Who doesn't want to read a story from the point of view of the bee hovering around?
Feast your eyes on this treasure that has nothing to do with the cyber-manufactured hysteria. (And no, Gianna, I'm not giving you Building Stories for Christmas.)
