This is a new Chris Ware book. It looks like an average sized book. It is not. It is huge. This personal anthology/memoir/ is bursting with art, books within books, fascinating insights, and Ware’s trademark humor and melancholy. It’s like opening a treasure chest filled with goodies, if those goodies were all created and curated by Chris Ware himself. Joy!! 😍🙌🏽 #chrisware #unabridgedbookoftheweek
As I struggled others will struggle, and for a long time yet people will know the same sun and moon; they will look at the same stars, and, like us, see in them the eyes of the dead. I have already washed and ironed the clothes I want to feel on my corpse. Sun risen, sun set, the days slip past and the sand blown by the wind will engulf my boat. But I shall die here, where I am, standing in my little garden. What happiness! • Wisdom for dark times from Simone Schwarz-Bart's THE BRIDGE OF BEYOND, a richly wrought tale of mothers and daughters struggling to overcome the grim colonial past of the French Antillean island of Guadeloupe. Translated from the French by Barbara Bray. 🇫🇷#translatedtuesday #simoneschwarzbart #thebridgeofbeyond
