Acme Novelty Library is without a doubt, a work of art, and I had the constant urge to remove pages and put them in frames, but resisted. I found I was only able to read the textual pieces one at a time over a period of time, but got through them okay. The artwork varies a lot, but you may find that you should start with one narrative, then find the next piece of that, rather than reading the book page-by-page, as this to me, made more sense. The Rusty Brown strips were especially good, although I liked the others too, but I could have done without the minuscule detail on some of the cartoons. The book is also huge, much larger than you would it is, and has quirky afterthoughts that make it incredible, Chris Ware has control over all parts of the publication and so each detail is intended. A work of art, although less detail could have been achieved.
