  • The first and much-anticipated monograph by multi-award winning cartoonist and graphic novelist Chris Ware, chronicling his influential quarter-century career.

    While illustrator Chris Ware s singular body of work is often categorized as comics, his trailblazing work defies genre.

    Whether he is writing graphic novels, making paintings, or building sculptures, Ware explores universal themes of social isolation, emotional torment, and depression with his trademark self-effacing voice.

    The end result is wry, highly empathetic, and identifiable to all walks of life. Ware, like Charles Schulz, Art Spiegelman, and R. Crumb, has elevated cartooning to an iconic art form.

    This volume is a personal, massive, never-before-seen look at how the artist s life and work combine, beginning with his newspaper family and the influence of their work; his art-school days in Austin and Chicago; to his career from the early 1990s to the present day.

    It also delves into how, as a storyteller and builder, his near-compulsion to build in three dimensions feeds into the thinking of his innovative narrative art.

    The book contains a comprehensive collection of his work, including many previously unpublished examples, and is an intimate window into a comics master sure to appeal to fans of art and storytelling.
