Building Chris Ware’s BUILDING STORIES

Hey everyone,

You will never believe what we just got in — Chris Ware’s MULTI-STORY BUILDING MODEL! And if you do believe it you will need to see it with your own eyes!

In advance of Ware’s Building Stories, Drawn and Quarterly has published this “absolutely unnecessary addendum” that creates a 11″ x 16″ x 18″ scale model of the multi-unit apartment populated by Ware’s newest character creations. All you’ll need to create this intricate masterpiece is copy of the model, a ruler, white glue and several sharp knives… which you can get at MIDOCO!

Yes, we’re teaming up with our good friends at Midoco to actually make one of these bad boys! When you get your copy, we highly suggest going to Midoco for all the rulers, glue and sharp knives you’ll need to create this intricate masterpiece.

The Multi-Story Building Model will be on sale on September 17th at The Beguiling. There are only 1,000 of these models in existence — so you’ll definitely want to pick this one up sooner rather than later. Also, we have an event coming up with Mr. Ware coming up on November 12th (details forthcoming), so maybe you could get yours signed again! Maybe? How cool would that be? The coolest? I think the coolest.
