Why the very very tiny panels and lettering? Is it a way of slowing the reader down? --Sam Leith Interview with Chris Ware, The Guardian, Sat 28 Sep 2019, https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/sep/28/i-envy-writers-who-suffer-from-no-self-doubts-inside-the-world-of-graphic-novelist-chris-ware

▫️Ron The paneling is designed to set the pace, indicate relative importance of events and moments, and maintain interest via contrast. It doesn't always work well, and Ware went over the line with tiny print size this time. Illegibility isn't a good standard to set in a book, and apparently that needs to be actually said out loud now.
John Braine I had to buy a magnifying glass but even at that I might just give up.
