Comics in the Museum

Building Stories by Chris Ware

Building Stories by Chris Ware

Hi all, sorry for the intermittent transmissions lately, schoolwork is ramping up alright…  Here’s something I’ve been meaning to listen to & share for a while; a conversation between cartoonist Chris Ware and novelist Zadie Smith at the New York Public Library.

EDIT: Sorry, embedding isn’t working, here’s the Original audio.

Not sure what they have in common, but always cool to see cartoonists taken seriously!  And Ware‘s a prime candidate for that obviously…

Speaking of, in my internship with the library of a preeetty big name modern art museum, I’m always on the look out for comic-themed books in their collection…  I’ve seen a couple on Robert Crumb and one D&Q anthology, very cool, then yesterday I saw Will Eisner‘s textbook on comics, Comics and Sequential Art!  Wonder when we’ll ever see any comics work represented in this museum though…
