Ira Glass and cartoonist Chris Ware decided to co-report a story together. Ira does the sound. Chris does hundreds of drawings. The result is a 22-minute story, with sound and images, now on DVD for the first time. The story's about a little boy who's obsessed with old buildings that are being demolished. It's packaged as this gorgeous little book, with 96 pages of never-before-published photographs of Louis Sullivan buildings, with the DVD tucked inside. Also, there are DVD Extras: audio outtakes, a look at Chris's pencil sketches, a high-resolution version of the movie that'll play on home computers.
