    Description

    Chris Ware Building Stories "Oak Park Newspaper" Page 19 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 fourteen 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". Ware's art is extremely difficult to find, particularly such detailed and graphically stunning pages from his most important books (if one can truly call it a "book," as it's definitely much more than that). In Excellent condition.
