Description - Building Stories by Chris Ware

In Chris Ware's own words, 'Building Stories follows the inhabitants of a three-flat Chicago apartment house- a thirty-year-old woman who has yet to find someone with whom to spend the rest of her life; a couple who wonder if they can bear each other's company for another minute; and finally an elderly woman who never married and is the building's landlady...'

The scope, the ambition, the artistry and emotional heft of this project are beyond anything even Chris Ware has achieved before.
