Historian, educator, and Oscar®-winning animator John Canemaker is a modern Renaissance man, and in this gorgeously illustrated biography, he examines the life and work of another protean creator — Winsor McCay, the first master of both the comic strip and the animated cartoon.
Milestone is offering brand-new copies of Winsor McCay: His Life and Art, SIGNED BY JOHN CANEMAKER. Since it was published in 2005, this book has gone out of print — and new copies are selling for very high prices online.
Publisher’s Weekly wrote: “The superb layout and design of this oversize edition are complemented by the copious illustrations (230 black-and-white and 40 full-color). The use of high-quality paper results in crisp, clear reproductions that are faithfully and accurately rendered. Overall, this is one of the most beautifully designed and well-written biographies of a cartoonist ever published. A pleasure to look at and read.”
