An imaginary book -- too good to be real. ( )
  Lloydville | Jun 12, 2009 |
This is a nice early collection of Winsor McCay's most famous work. I respect "Little Nemo in Slumberland" for its fine art and groundbreaking influence, but I find it a very difficult read today because of the horrible lettering and the wildly antic storylines. And this book is in black-and-white, so the gorgeous art is presented to less than full effect. ( )

Little Nemo in Slumberland is a pioneering comic strip from the turn of the last century. Winsor McCay's work is fantastical and his artwork detailed and wonderfully painted.

This book reproduces 110 of these Sunday strips at full-size for the first time in history and the results are absolutely AMAZING.

If you love comics and appreciate beautiful art, this admittedly expensive book is a must have for your collection. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976888505, Hardcover)

"Likely the most spectacular book about comics ever" (LA TIMES) "....the finest." (TIME). The first edition of this book sold out in the first three months and is now out of print. The improved second printing is available NOW. Celebrate the 100th birthday of Winsor McCay's masterpiece with this FULL ORIGNAL SIZE, 120-page hardbound volume. It features Nemo's best from 1905-1910, all printed in the actual newspaper-page size, 16 x 21 inches. It was the greatest comic strip of its day, perhaps the greatest of all time, acclaimed the world over for its artistic majesty, unbounded imagination, and ground-breaking techniques that helped define a new art form. But since its debut 100 years ago, it has been all but impossible to view these masterpieces in their original size and colors. LITTLE NEMO IN SLUMBERLAND can now be seen as creator Winsor McCay intended; 110 digitally-restored, full-size prints presented in incredible detail displaying the superb draftsmanship and unique comic style of the prolific McCay. This magnificent volume has become the most highly praised book of its kind. From a testimonial by writer and artist ART SPIEGELMAN: ". . . this heartbreakingly beautiful book is the reinvention of Winsor McCay - as if he was being published for the first time. Only better. " Famed graphic novelist CHRIS WARE calls "Splendid Sundays" "A wonderful thing. . . it's 'the book of the year.'" Writer NEIL GAIMAN says, "It is every bit as gorgeous as inspiring and as necessary as I had hoped." And from "Simpsons" creator MATT GROENING, "It's just amazing!"
