Chris Ware Quimby's 25th Anniversary Print Smaller Size
by Chris Ware
12.25”x14.25”, full color print ink on one side, dark green ink on the back
Chris Ware made this amazing print for us to celebrate our silver jubilee. It's a model of our store that you can make your very own in-house Quimby's to stare at any time you want. It also explains, in the poetic way that only Mr. Ware can, the story of the store, his relationship with it, and some of the key players in the store. There's stuff about the original and current owners, as well as the store manager and what exactly is THE DEAL with Quimby the Mouse and Quimby's Bookstore.
PLUS! This smaller edition of this print has an Acme Novelty Library comic on the back by Mr. Ware, originally published in Chicago's very own NewCity in 1996, featuring Jimmy Corrigan learning about freak culture here at this fine establishment, then disseminating his first Xeroxed foray into fringe publishing.
