illustrated books

illustrated books (graphic novels, comic books - call them what you will)....

a recent purchase: Chris Ware's Building Stories reminded me how amazingly intricate and clever some of these illustrated books are.

This publication comes in a box containing several items - everything links up. Such fine, clever and intricate drawing... and storylines. A treat.




an earlier work by the same author/illustrator: 
Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth was my first introduction to Chris Ware's work



His work appears weekly in The Guardian newspaper (UK)

...other favourites of mine:

Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis
Joe Sacco
 and I suspect these will be purchases in the near future....

Richard McGuire 
Craig R. Thompson 

David Mazzucchelli 

If you've any further suggestions - please leave a comment :-)
