    Chris Ware Building Stories "Oak Park Newspaper" Page 18 Original Art (Pantheon, 2011). Chris Ware's Building Stories is unlike any comic book or graphic novel ever published. This box set is composed of 14 different books, booklets, newspapers, comic strips, magazines, a "Golden Little Book," even a board game. This oversized "newspaper" page is from the "Veterinarian" section of the "Oak Park" paper, drawn in ink and blue pencil on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 18" x 25". One panel is an original art paste-up. A detailed and graphically stunning page from one of Ware's most important books (if one can truly call it a "book," as it's definitely much more than that). Signed by Ware in the lower right. In Excellent condition.
