Elephant and Nemo notebook. Little Nemo is the main fictional character in a series of weekly comic strips by Winsor McCay (1871-1934) that appeared in the New York Herald and William Randolph Hearst’s New York American newspapers in the early 20th century.

The comic strips have since been republished as bound books. They’re expensive but look lovely!
