[Editor‘s Note: Chris Ware contributes the first installment of “Jordan W. Lint,” a “serialized pictorial fiction,” to the Winter 2008 issue of VQR. Ware’s new project tells the story of the fictional Jordan W. Lint by illustrating single days from each year of his life. The first thirteen years of Lint’s life are featured in the Zadie Smith-edited anthology The Book of Other People (Penguin, 2008). Future installments of “Jordan W. Lint” will appear in VQR as Ware completes them. Ware also drew the cover for the Winter 2008 issue. Click on the images below to view them at a larger size.]
