So I was going to post about early animation toys and devices, but unfortunately all the websites I knew about were from Lorelei! Sooo I was looking around about Winsor McCay because he is one of my favorite comic artists/animators and I found a library on all the Little Nemo comics:
The Little Nemo: Aventures in Slumberland!
Be prepared to spend hours on that site. And sorry it wasn't really related to animation per say... ah well.
