David's Copy of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan

Blog contributor David from Manhattan has scanned his copy of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth for our benefit. He writes:
The year (2000) the book came out his publisher set up a table at "New York is Book Country." I was late (I think the time slot was 3-4), but no one was there, so he was quite happy to indulge me with his white pen... The black page with stars is on the other side of the free endpaper. Opposite that is a page with planet Earth getting closer and closer, and Jimmy's mom calling him.

Inscribed "To David. Hope you like this book okay. C. Ware. 2000 A.D." With a drawing of Jimmy Corrigan. 

Chris Ware, Jimmy Corrigan:  The Smartest Kid on Earth, 2000.

Note: I have not had Chris Ware on the blog before, but this copy of his book seems like an excellent place to start. My thanks to David from Manhattan for sharing it. David has now contributed to this blog twenty-seven times!
