Worth a thousand words, they say

McSweeney's Quarterly Concern No. 13 won Time magazine's "Best Comix" award for 2004. Paul loves this book. Like one of my favorite bloggers, I don't get it about graphic fiction. But ever selfless, I gave Paul an autographed copy of Chris Ware's award-winning cover for the book, a redundancy since he had the book already, but suitable for framing. I had to call McSweeney's, though, to make sure it was autographed. I couldn't find it the signature! It is tiny and in pencil, the artist's way, to avoid accusations of the signing machine.
