This book features adventures in pajamas. The complete Little Nemo compilation - Meet Little Nemo, a diminutive hero of comic history, but one of the greatest dream voyagers of the 20th century, and a masterpiece of narrative imagination. Created by Winsor McCay (1869-1934), restless sleeper Nemo travelled in a weekly, full-page comic strip from bed to Slumberland, a fantastical realm of colorful companions, psychedelic scenery, fears and adventures, all of which ended abruptly when Nemo awoke in the final panel. Nemo's author McCay can be considered a founding figure in the modern American entertainment industry. A trailblazer in both stage theatre and animated film, he fascinated vaudeville audiences with spectacles of reality and illusion, and set standards for animation-one and a half decades before Walt Disney-that would remain relevant for generations to come. It was above all with his beloved comic creations, however, that McCay made his mark. With his exploration of panel layout and narrative technique championed in Little Nemo, his use of enticing timing and pacing, and his interest in architectural and other detail, McCay had 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 550 episodes of Little Nemo in Slumberland. In his extensive accompanying text, illustrated by historical photographs and documents, 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. This publication is a tremendous monument to one of the most innovative pioneers-and one of the most intrepid explores-of comics.
