Chris Ware (2013 event)

In Chris Ware’s first appearance at the Book Festival he discussed his critically acclaimed graphic novel Building Stories and why comics are a language, not a genre with event chair and comics fan Stuart Kelly. Building Stories is a box set of differently-sized comics, booklets, broadsheets, posters and a cloth bound book has been described as ‘a graphic novel on the scale of James Joyce’s Ulysses’. This event was introduced by Roland Gulliver and recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
