Winsor McCay’s Hippodrome souvenirs

hippodrome.jpg

A cover design by the great cartoonist and pioneer animator. Typical of a compulsive fantasist to add a huge dragon head to an otherwise regulation piece of Chinoiserie. No date or any indication as to whether McCay’s work was also featured inside but there’s another design of his for the same establishment here. The latter version could almost be a page from Little Nemo in Slumberland.
