Product description

Review

..". likely the most spectacular book about comics ever, is "Little Nemo in Slumberland -- Splendid Sundays," an ... impeccably reproduced collection of the best of this groundbreaking early 20th century comic by the great Winsor McCay." -- Kenneth Turan "Los Angeles Times"

"The book is so huge you have to crawl over it to read it. It's 21 inches long and 16 inches wide. And cartoonists from Matt Groening to Chris Ware are going nuts over it. It's not only the grand cinematic things that come through at full scale. It's the little things too" -- Sarah Boxer "New York Times"

"Very few people who are still alive have seen Winsor McCay's work the way it was meant to be seen... I've seen scattered reprints of "Little Nemo," but I opened this book and thought, 'Now I get it'. " -- Douglas Wolk "Salon"

"Absolutely Gorgeous... Though collected in various editions over the years, this one is the finest... a magic formula for instant regression as you cradle a huge book in your lap and stare, open-mouthed, at the dazzling color, wild visual imagination and enchanting stories of "Little Nemo." -- Andrew Arnold "TIME Online"

"The turn-of-the-century strip couldn't look better in a new, lavishly produced book that collects 110 of McCay's magnificently illustrated, full-color Sunday strips, completely restored and reproduced in their original dimensions." -- Calvin Reid "Publisher's Weekly"

"It took only a century, but Winsor McCay's comic-strip masterpiece -magical, surreal, and breathtakingly beautiful - has finally found a home in this oversize limited-edition volume." -- Best of the Year, 2005 "Entertainment Weekly"

This edition is frankly amazing; its massive size and color-corrected prints do justice to one of the most mind-bogglingly lovely comic strips you've ever seen... no book was bigger in our minds than Peter Maresca's tribute to Winsor McCay's 100-year-old Sunday comic, Little Nemo in Slumberland. -- Best of the Year, 2006 "E! Online"

"Enter: Little Nemo in Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays! It is remarkable not only because it returns McCay to print, an event which was long overdue, but also because it breaks new ground in how comics are, and should be, reproduced. In other words: the content is extraordinary, but so is the enormous object itself ." -- Gabriel Greenberg "PopMatters"

"Fantastical...The book is so huge you have to crawl over it to read it. It's 21 inches long and 16 inches wide. And cartoonists from Matt Groening to Chris Ware are going nuts over it. It's not only the grand cinematic things that come through at full scale. It's the little things too." -- Sarah Boxer "New York Times"

From the Inside Flap

Here are the dreams of all children,worlds of fantasy, humor, terror, and grand adventure.It was the greatest comic strip of its day, perhaps the greatest of all time, acclaimed the world over for its artistic majesty, unbounded imaginationand ground-breaking techniques that helped define a new art form. But since its debut one hundred years ago, it has been all but impossible to view these masterpieces in their original size and colors.LITTLE NEMO IN SLUMBERLANDcan now be seen as creator Winsor McCay intended, full broadsheet-sized and with glorious colors. Over one hundred restored pages are presented in incredible detail displaying the superb draftsmanship of the prolific McCay. Enjoy the Sunday morning experience shared by millions at the dawn of the last century. Again, for the first time.
