Little Nemo in Slumberland – The full run of Winsor McCay’s beautiful, psychedelic comics of over 100 years ago

Little Nemo in Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays!
by Winsor McCay
Sunday Press Books
2005, 120 pages, 16.2 x 21.1 x 0.8 inches
$525 Buy a copy on Amazon

One hundred years ago Sunday newspaper comics were a big deal. They were published, as all newspapers were then, on huge tabloid sheets that opened up as large as a table. Printed in full color, they played the role that movies, TV, and the Internet combined would later play in entertainment. Their huge canvases carried the pop culture of the day. Among the many popular “strips” from that era, one stands out for its artistic brilliance: Little Nemo. Cast as the dreams of a sleeping boy, these large, swelling visions were psychedelic, surreal and hallucinogenic trips. And totally beautiful. This one-of-a-kind book reproduces the full run of this comic from 1905 onward at the same scale and quality of the original. Opening its pages today is still magical, and only hints at how amazing it would have been 100 years ago. This is truly a book that only works printed on paper. It is a remarkable work of art in itself. – Kevin Kelly

How to Be a Math Genius - Illustrated examples to show your kid the power, beauty, and joy of math

How to Be a Math Genius
by Mike Goldsmith
DK Children
2012, 128 pages, 11.1 x 8.7 x 0.9 inches
$14 Buy a copy on Amazon

I enjoyed learning about statistics, probability, zero, infinity, number sequences, and more in this heavily illustrated kids’ book. But would my 11-year daughter like it as much? I handed it to her after school and she become absorbed in it until called for dinner. She took it to the dinner table and read it while we ate. The next day, she asked for the book so she could finish it. Loaded with fun exercises (like cutting a hole through a sheet of paper so you can walk through it), How to Be a Math Genius will show kids (and adults) that math is often complicated, but doesn’t need to be boring. This book is part of DK Children’s How to Be a Genius series. See my review of How to Be a Genius here. – Mark Frauenfelder
