Bookforum Hosts Art by Chris Ware, Dash Shaw, Gabrielle Bell
Bookforum is currently hosting art from a who's who of indie cartoonists, juxtaposing their work with excellent excerpts from novels, memoirs, and short stories.
Thrill! To Dash Shaw art accompanying a heart-breaking story by a survivor of a Chinese prison; meanwhile, Paul Hornschemier cartoons about "Literature Through the Ages"; Lauren Weinstein loosely reinteprets Yeats' "The Dreaming of the Bones"; Chris Ware muses about using autobiographical events in fiction in a cartoon posted inside another heartbreaking story of a daughter's murder; lost children discover comics in a strip by CF, and Gabrielle Bell explains why "From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" changed her childhood.
