Reviews - What do customers think about Winsor McCay: The Editorial Works?

Winsor McCay deserves better  Dec 25, 2006
The title page lists a publisher and two graphic designers, but not the person who wrote the captions. Fair enough - nobody should want to be remembered for such a lamentable job. A 1914 cartoon shows a frog-jawed man slumped at his desk while, on the right side, War knocks at his door and, on the left side, a dove flies out the window carrying a bag labelled "$50,000 Nobel Peace Prize". The 2006 caption explains: "War is an ogre gently tapping at the door of a Nobel peace prize winning lecturer." A modest acquaintance with US history, confirmed by two minutes on a search engine, would have made it possible to identify the man as William Jennings Bryan (especially since his suitcase bears the initials "WJB"), to add that he was Secretary of State in 1914, that no Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in that year, and that Bryan never won the Peace Prize anyway. But the whole book is like that, with captions full of spelling errors ("estoles" for "extolls"), twisted syntax, and historical slips. Of course the cartoons are always charming, sometimes impressive. Buy the book if you don't live near a library with microfilms of the old New York American. The book, however, won't come close to giving you the background you need to appreciate McCay's work.
