Winsor McCay: His Life and Art
by John Canemaker
Publisher's Description
"Winsor McCay (1867-1934) was America's earliest, greatest, and most influential master of the comic strip and the animated cartoon. McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland, first published in 1905, is the most beautiful comic strip ever drawn, and his Gertie the Dinosaur of 1914 anticipates the mature animated films of Walt Disney by two decades."--the publisher. Canemaker has gathered rare photographs, memorabilia, and McCay's original art work to illustrate the first biography of this modern master, tracing his career from caricaturist in dime museums to popular newspaper cartoonist.
