Quimbys Bookstore celebrates their 20th Anniversary with a limited Chris Ware print.
The print features the design drawings used to create their iconic sign.
“People often ask us if Quimby’s Bookstore is named after Mr. Ware’s Quimby the Mouse character. No, we are not named after that character. In a weird coincidence, both the name of the store and Ware’s Quimby the Mouse character were serendipitously created at the same time without the knowledge of each other’s creation. But both Steven Svymbersky (the original owner of Quimby’s) and Eric Kirsammer (the current owner of Quimby’s) are friends with Mr. Ware. And he was kind enough to design signage for us.”
