Out of print for a decade, this new edition (with newly designed covers) of The Comic Strip Art of Lyonel Feininger is a complete collection of the legendary work of one of the medium's all-time greatest artists. Feininger was one of the ten cartooning greats featured in the historic nationally-traveling "Masters of American Comics" show produced by the Los Angeles Hammer Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art and is the subject of a 2011 retrospective survey at the Whitney Museum of Art. Known worldwide for his accomplishments as a painter, Feininger began his career as a cartoonist, producing — all too briefly — two beautifully ambitious comic strips for the Chicago Sunday Tribune in 1906: The Kin-Der-Kids and Wee Willie Winkie's World, both of which remain high points in the history of strip cartooning. The Kin-Der-Kids is a rollicking comic opera of the ludicrous exploits of a group of young adventurers as they set off around the world in their bathtub with the oppressive Auntie Jim-Jam in hot pursuit. Wee Willie Winkie's World is a Little Nemo-esque visual tour-de-force of a little boy's charming fantasy world. Long considered an equal of Winsor McCay and George Herriman, Feininger's place in strip history is cemented with this beautiful, full-color, oversized collection, edited and featuring an introduction by historian Bill Blackbeard (Krazy & Ignatz).

"[Feininger's strips] represent an unprecedented event in the history of comics and fine art — a flash of brilliance at the intersection of high and low." – Brian Walker, Masters of American Comics

"Feininger's small body of strip work achieved a breathtaking formal grace unsurpassed in the history of the medium." – Art Spiegelman, New York Review of Books
