Little Nemo In Slumberland Vol.2

One of the most difficult things about publishing our first Little Nemo in Slumberland volume was trying to limit the selection to only 100 Sunday pages for the Centennial edition. In fact, we couldn’t, so we ended up with 109 pages. One of the best things about that book’s unequivocal and unanticipated success is the opportunity to restore and reprint another volume of Splendid Sundays, a volume to include some of those other wonderful pages.

The newspaper pages presented here include two incredible adventures from the first Little Nemo series (1905 – 1911) and a sampler of the best Sunday pages from the other two incarnations of Winsor McCay’s timeless classic. In the Land of Wonderful Dreams was published from 1911 – 1914 and Little Nemo in Slumberland ran again from 1924 – 1927. The total series spans over twenty years and contains nearly 500 pages. Once again, we had to choose: this time we selected 120 Sundays.

When dealing with a collection of material this old, there are always wide variations among pages in the printing inks, color separation, and paper quality. These differences become magnified because of the time span of the work, different newspapers, and changing print processes. Restoration is a complex effort as we strive for continuity and a common appearance of these strips through the years.
