Winsor McCay: The Complete Little Nemo 1905–1927

There are few comic illustrators who capture the imagination like Winsor McCay did in his Little Nemo series during the ’20s. Adventures through slumber time, via McCay’s protagonist, Little Nemo, saw the artist take his readers on an immersive and often psychedelic trip through a parallel world – one populated with walking beds, jungle life and of course, pyjamas. It wasn’t only McCay’s stories which saw him connect with his audience – McCay 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 is set to release a comprehensive re-issue of the complete series of dream narratives – 549 episodes in all – originally published between 1905 and 1927. For fans, this is the one.
