Construction-struction What's Your Function (which doesn't rhyme)?

Justification time:

Uh.... let's see. Chris Ware did some work on one of the Little Lit books so ipso facto (and despite the fact that his subject matter is clearly adult) he can be considered kidlit news. Especially since this site makes a direct reference to the aforementioned Little Lit.

Cartoonist Chris Ware has a tendency to fill his books with cut-and-assemble paper toys that no one in their right mind would ever attempt to reconstruct. To do so, after all, would mean destroying portions of a very nice book. Tell that to one Niem Tran, however. Tran personally assembled everything Ware had to offer then placed them online for your viewing pleasure, and with Ware's blessing. The results are rather stunning.

Many thanks to Drawn for the link.

Oh, wow--great link! I definitely mentally assembled many of the items in Jimmy Corrigan, but the thought of cutting into the actual book makes me feel very sad. I suppose that these days there are newfangled things like color copiers, though, but...yeah.
