Sendak, in his introduction, rightly calls McCay "one of America's great fantasists.

Winsor McCay (1867-1934) is universally acknowledged as the first master of both the comic strip and the animated cartoon. Although invented by others, both genres were developed into enduring popular art of the highest imagination through McCay's innovative genius. Included are new materials found since the previous publication of the book such as new comic strips of Little Nemo in Slumberland, and new sketches of Gertie the Dinosaur. Adult/High School McCay has been aptly described by Maurice Sendak as one of America's rare, great fantasists

Reviews:
  • Jugami
The biographical data is plentiful and well-researched. Analysis of the art is insightful. The strips are rendered a little differently on modern papers than on the originals, leaning more toward sharp contrasts than the originally intended pastels, and of course the book format forces the art to be shrunken somewhat from the original. But the book itself is well bound and much was done with what is allowed in this format. A good introduction for those just discovering McCay and his work.

A terrific collection along with a reasonable biography of the groundbreaking artist. My copy warped during shipping but I didn't care. I was just so happy it was in print again!

Last Christmas my dad got a book on Maurice Sendak and raved about it for the rest of the year. I got him this book because I knew he also liked McCay. I was a little miffed when I first opened it because there is more written biography than there are pages of his art, but sure enough my dad was reading it through out the holiday.

A great buy if you want to read about the man, but if you just wanted a coffee table book to page through then I might try something else.

The biography and life works of incredible artist and illustrator Windsor McCay is just a phenomninal representation of his life and works and should be read by anyone interested in his art. I thoroghly enjoyed it.

I was delighted by the book both the art and the text. Learned a lot about a great artist and read and look thorough the book often

The book smelled like it had been in a smoker's house for a LONG time.... It's the very nice book that I've seen for years, but smelly.
If you don't know McCay's work, check out "Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend" and "Little Nemo in Slumberland" (not the movie). His art was visually compelling and psychologically savvy. Nemo was the more elaborate, with plenty of grand vistas and architectural wonders while Rarebit was visually spare, but more adult in content. All his work has a marvelously surreal sense about it, heightened by the detailed realism of his style - characters exit the confines of the strip or discuss the cartoonist's failings with the reader, landscapes and characters metamorphose into new configurations in ways that are perhaps best described as psychedelic.

This book presents a biography of this strange and gentle man as well as a generous sampling of his better work, including more obscure feaures and his stunning editorial cartoons (more sweeping panoramas and vast architectural wonders). Also recommended is the Fantagraphics volume "Daydreams and Nightmares" which offers up another good cross-section of his work (except Nemo, which is collected elsewhere).

A true American original, it's a shame more people don't know and appreciate his work.
