I know that the Sunday Press books were hand bound for exactly that reason If I'm right that extra inch or so makes a very big difference in price satisfies the obsessive compulsive desire for authenticity afflicting most of us book collectors but offers no appreciable gains in reading enjoymentRegarding complaints that the book is too big shut the fuck upRegarding complaints that Taschen is claiming to have invested far time and money on art 'restoration' than they actually did fair enough One reviewer gave a convincing and detailed account of his reasons for knocking the book down to 4 stars instead of 5 and they relate to what he considers Taschen's sub par restoration and use of flawed source material including pages with creases and at least one tear This after Taschen claimed to have spent years on the job It's true I don't see any real improvement on the Sunday Press reprints but they only reprinted 20 25% the material this work does They were able to skip the rarest poorest pages while Taschen could not Still it's a legitimate gripe; I just don't think it comes close to negating the many many positives of this brilliant collection The idea of art restoration as it applies to newspaper comic strips is pretty hazy and trying to find suitable 100 year old Sunday pages printed on pulpy newsprint with an acidic content that makes yellowing and brittleness inevitable is not an easy task Regardless of preservation efforts the existing strips will soon completely deteriorate making efforts like this essential Unlike Prince Valiant which debuted 30 years after Winsor McCay's most popular strip using original art for pristine black and white facsimiles or printer's proofs like the ones Fantagraphics uses for its excellent color reprints are simply not options I was impressed with the vibrancy of the colors and I think the scans eual those used in the Sunday Press editions but it's a matter of personal taste and varying expectationsThe massive clothbound hardcover is introduced by Alexander Braun who provides biographical and historical detail for each stage of McCay's career the original run of 'Little Nemo in Slumberland' was the best; the printing presses at the Pulitzer flagship were the best of the best allowing for the most vivid and carefully executed colors any strip would see for some time When McCay was lured away by the notorious William Randolph Hearst the title had to be changed to avoid lawsuits the colors lost some of their lustre and the strips themselves began to very gradually decline in uality Hearst was interested in McCay's prodigious talents as an illustrator providing work to accompany the editorials Providing beautifully rendered illustrations for the right wing screeds of Hearst's chief mouthpiece and propagandist left little time for NemoThere is also a 135 x 1725 softcover written by Braun 'Winsor McCay A Life of Imaginative Genius' that is worth a fair amount on its own and a wonderfully designed carry case identical to the case that the Taschen book on Hieronymus Bosch came in constructed in an over sized manner to protect the corners make sure to save the box The biographical volume by Braun is far from a cheap bonus; I would have purchased it if it wasn't included so I'm once again impressed by the value and the uality Laid out in the style and font of a turn of the 20th century 'broadsheet' newspaper the articles are fascinating exploring a wide array of topics relating to McCay's artistic accomplishments It also contains many of McCay's editorial illustrations and other comic strips his first 'Little Sammy Sneeze' as well as the darker psychological themes of 'Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend' McCay created the strip just four years after Freud released his revolutionary book 'On the Interpretation of Dreams'This is an essential volume for hardcore seuential art aficionados and the perfect tribute to one of America's most important and uniue artistic talents It's a remarkable book and one I never thought would be possible at the price it's going forEisnein's No15 Favorite ArtistArtbook Check Out No16 Right HERE Go Back to No1 HERE More Art book Reviews More Comic book Reviews More Novel Reviews A Mysterious Review Related to the Book in uestion But Written by a Friend Instead
