I just got my new book (!) Building Stories by Chris Ware

This is a box with books and comics inside, it is all that and so much more. It is a big ole gift to yourself, and I just saw it on Amazon for $25, which is half price, and is crazy because local stores cannot compete with that, but it is an amazing price and you get so much for your money!

The colors are so deep and the printing so crisp. The faux Golden Book isn’t perfect, it looks fantastic, but the foil on the side is coming off, but who care, it is a faux Golden Book! Do I sound like an asshole if I mention that Chris Ware lived above my best friend in Chicago in the 1990’s? So so much of his work reminds me of that time and place in Chicago.

Also I cannot let my kids see these because some of the pictures would upset them, maybe traumatize them.

About Gotcha Cha Cha

Hello, I am making this blog to complement my store on Etsy. I sell "found" art and lovely illustrations from unusable vintage books. I also love my 2 cats (Lupe and Cha Cha, hence the inspiration for the store/blog name) and one dog (Daisy a beagle), not to mention my 2 school age daughters, and my husband who can draw anything and does that for a living.
