CHRIS WARE

"THANKSGIVING"

On November 27, 2006, The New Yorker published four different covers by cartoonist Chris Ware. Taken as a whole, the drawings form a complete story, especially including final fifth strip which only appeared online.

This special signed edition print portfolio contains all five of these drawings – each printed in full color on 15" x 20" heavy cream-colored paper, and hand-placed in a specially-designed hardcover portfolio. In addition to the original published Thanksgiving drawings, the artist has prepared a supplementary 16" X 11" comic strip which features many of the same characters, as well as a facsimile reproduction of his notes for the project, which he has also decorated with a unique hand-drawn doodle.
