Adventures in pajamas: The complete Little Nemo compilation
 
Meet Little Nemo, a diminutive hero of comic narrative, but one of the greatest dream voyagers of the 20th century. The master creation of Winsor McCay (1869–1934), restless sleeper Nemo inspired generations of artists with his weekly adventures from bed to Slumberland, a realm of colorful companions, psychedelic scenery, and thrilling escapades.

Nemo’s creator Winsor McCay was a founding figure in the modern American entertainment industry, above all with his revolutionary comics, which set standards for panel layout and storytelling technique, timing and pacing, and architectural and other detail that left an inestimable influence on subsequent artists, including Robert Crumb and Federico Fellini.

TASCHEN’s sumptuous Winsor McCay: The Complete Little Nemo 1905–1927 collects, for the very first time, and in full, glorious color, all 549 episodes of Little Nemo. In the illustrated accompanying volume, art historian and comics expert Alexander Braun places Winsor McCay’s life and work within the cultural history of the U.S. media and entertainment industry, and explores the immense art historical value of McCay's dream narrative. At once an adventure story, visual delight, and piece of cultural history, this publication is a tremendous monument to one of the most innovative pioneers—and one of the most intrepid explorers—of comic history.

Synopsis:

Welcome to dreamland.  The complete Little Nemo compilation

 

Winsor McCay (1869-1934) was one of the key figures in the American entertainment industry at the beginning of the 20th century. As a comic artist, his influence was inestimable: he set standards in narrative technique, panel layout, and graphic refinement that still apply today. His virtuoso play with perspective, color, and narrative levels influenced generations of artists after him and, has over the years lost none of its appeal. McCay was also one of the most important trailblazers in animated film: beginning in 1911—one and a half decades before Walt Disney—he defined standards for animated films that would remain relevant for decades to come. Additionally, he toured the United States with his own stage show, in which he combined reality and illustrated fiction for vaudeville audiences in an astonishing way. Though McCay was a master of illusion, he never shied away from revealing the hidden “mechanics” behind the magic to his audience. 

TASCHENs sumptuous Winsor McCay: The Complete Little Nemo 1905-1927 collects, for the very first time, in full, glorious color and in the original large format in which they first appeared in the comic supplements of the major American Sunday

newspapers, all 550 episodes of “Little Nemo in Slumberland”—the iconic comic strip in which a little boy's fantastic and surreal dreams come to life. In his extensive accompanying text, illustrated by historical photographs and documents, comics expert Alexander Braundescribes Winsor McCays life and places his work within the cultural history of the U.S. media and entertainment industry shortly after the turn of the 20th century. This publication is a tremendous monument to one of the most innovative pioneers of comics that no comics fan will want to miss.
