{     Chris Ware Poster- Hanley Gallery     }    

Submitted for your approval: In March of 2003, The Jack Hanley Gallery of San Francisco, California hosted an exhibition of the work of Mr. F.C. Ware- the proprietor of the renowned Acme Novelty Library. In preparation for the event, an exclusive handbill was issued- capturing the painstaking typography and detail that have become the hallmark of Ware’s work- on a heavy-stock sheet of quality milled paper. The “poster” was originally offered to gallery-goers for an incremental fee as a souvenir of their time spent perusing the work of the artist. Press house Last Gasp Publishing has dubiously acquired several of the prints, and is issuing them for sale at a price of 15 dollars through their internet web-site, conveniently located on the information super-highway. Suitable for framing and measuring the length of your outstretched arm, the print is first wrapped neatly in butcher-paper before being carefully placed inside the sturdiest of cardboard tubes to be shipped to your home, insuring no damage occurs throughout its journey. Prior to my ownership of this fine piece of artwork, I had begun construction on a mechanical man, or “robot” in the modern lexicon, whose sole purpose was to quietly murder me in my sleep- thus whisking me away from the drudgery that is human existence. Now that I am able to peruse the work of F.C. Ware upon awakening each day, I am considering abandoning the project entirely.

Buy this shit, NOW!!, before they are gone. I got this as a birthday gift from the author of this post and trust me, it is worth 5 times what you pay for it. Now if I could just find someone to frame it for that price?!? If you are not familiar with Mr. Ware, check out an interview he did for the Onion a few years back:

Then go and buy everything he has ever done.

Which brings us to what I've been wondering lately: where can I get some damn good, and damn cheap framing done? Online or off...

If anyone knows where I can find the Wind-Up Bird mechanical diagram done by Chris Ware for the cover of Haruki Murakami's Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, that would be excellent. A website or any poster print would do just fine. Also, I am a custom framer so if you give me the width and height of your poster and what you would like as far as a frame and matting, i could give you an estimate and probably cut a pretty good deal.
