Completed over ten years and incorporating myriad techniques and forms, BUILDING STORIES is Ware's most ambitious work. Recalling the work of Joseph Cornell and Marcel Duchamp, BUILDING STORIES is a physical, tactile work made of individual pieces that the reader must assemble together to tell the story of an unnamed woman living in a three-story brownstone in Chicago. Martha Kuhlman said of the work, "The projectóto document the multiple perspectives of these charactersóaspires to a graphic novel on the scale of James Joyceís Ulysses." A landmark of the graphic novel genre.
