Synopsis :

A career-spanning retrospective of one of the masters of North American cartooning

The first of a historic two-volume set, The Collected Doug Wright: Canada?s Master Cartoonist presents the first-ever comprehensive look at the life and career of one of the most-read and best-loved cartoonists of the 1960s. Compiled in cooperation with Doug Wright?s family, it draws from thousands of pieces of art, pictures, letters, and the artist?s own journals to provide a fully rounded view of Wright, both as a cartoonist and as an individual.

Volume One follows the artistic development of the British-born cartoonist from his earliest unpublished work to the first days of his most enduring comic strip, Nipper. First published in 1949, a full year before the debut of Peanuts, this wordless strip perfectly captured the humorous?and frustrating?side of parenting for several generations of both young and old. Remembered by many for Wright?s cartoon children?s striped shirts and bald heads, Nipper quickly grew into a Canadian phenomenon.

Designed by the acclaimed cartoonist and Peanuts designer Seth and featuring a biographical essay by the writer Brad Mackay, this lavish hardcover collection gives Wright?s career the recognition it has long been due. The introduction is by one of the most famous working cartoonists today, Lynn Johnston of the syndicated heavyweight comic strip For Better or For Worse.

?I don?t think I?d have had the basics needed to do a syndicated comic strip had it not been for Doug Wright? (Lynn Johnston, from the introduction).
