Little Nemo in Slumberland – The full run of Winsor McCay’s beautiful, psychedelic comics of over 100 years ago

Little Nemo in Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays!
by Winsor McCay
Sunday Press Books
2005, 120 pages, 16.2 x 21.1 x 0.8 inches
$525 Buy a copy on Amazon

One hundred years ago Sunday newspaper comics were a big deal. They were published, as all newspapers were then, on huge tabloid sheets that opened up as large as a table. Printed in full color, they played the role that movies, TV, and the Internet combined would later play in entertainment. Their huge canvases carried the pop culture of the day. Among the many popular “strips” from that era, one stands out for its artistic brilliance: Little Nemo. Cast as the dreams of a sleeping boy, these large, swelling visions were psychedelic, surreal and hallucinogenic trips. And totally beautiful. This one-of-a-kind book reproduces the full run of this comic from 1905 onward at the same scale and quality of the original. Opening its pages today is still magical, and only hints at how amazing it would have been 100 years ago. This is truly a book that only works printed on paper. It is a remarkable work of art in itself. – Kevin Kelly
