Building Stories

Are you reading Chris Ware's Building Stories in the Times Magazine? If not, maybe you should be. Today's was part 28, but all 27 previous parts are PDF'd and online. I've been following it on and off for the six months that it's been in the magazine's "Funny Pages," but I can see going back and reading it through in one sitting one day when I have time. Each installment takes anywhere from two to ten minutes to read, depending on how long you linger.

And while we're talking about it, check out the Times' redesigned homepage. My first impression? It's kinda, sorta reminiscent of New York magazine's new-ish look. Not an exact copy, but similar genes.

Lastly, a great little introduction to the artist Rachel Whiteread can be found here, from the NYTM's Design Spring 2006 supplement. One of her works is currently occupying the Tate Modern's massive Turbine Hall in London, as a part of the ongoing commission series there.
