Another beautiful slice of cartoon history. Makes you wish you lived in such times and places where imagination was the norm. Creative life has its' dark side as does all professions I suppose, and this book does not cover it up, nor glorify it. A nice look at many of the colourful characters that brought us laughs and adventure, with a great deal of talent, from days gone by too fast on the printed page.
