Product Description


Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life (BILL CLINTON)

It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does... at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz (Seattle Times)

The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated (UMBERTO ECO)

Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher . . . But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life (JOHN WATERS)

Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book (Huffington Post)

These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment (Sunday Times)

All sorts of important writers have marvelled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism . . . by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate . . . in lavishly appointed hardback . . . Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them (Spectator)

As essential as pop texts get (The Onion)

The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child (Time) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The latest in Canongate's highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Garry Trudeau --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Peanuts 6 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Yet another edition, good condition and delivered in time, of this terrific series. The great point about this series is the fact that the books are hardback and, therefore, are hardy enough to withstand multiple readings and look good on the bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic collection! 20 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having read the Peanuts strips during the 70s and early 80s many. many times, it is a joy to read these less familiar strips. They may be less well know but there is no dip in quality. Worth buying for the 'Are you not a little old for me' Linus strips alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another two years of Peanuts. 9 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These two years show changes in the Peanuts comic strips. In 1987, Sundays cease being introduced with "Peanuts featuring Good Ol' Charlie Brown"; it'll just be "Peanuts" from now on until the end of the strip. But more importantly, in 1988, the strip breaks from the four-panel format which Schulz kept for nearly 38 years.

While not as cynical as the strips from the 60s, this book provides a lot of laughs. One thing that was improved through the 70s and 80s is the drawing, in my opinion. Some hilarious drawings in this one, such as Charlie Brown winking at the Little Red-Haired Girl (page 6/7), and Linus pulls the funniest facial expression ever seen in a Peanuts comic strip thus far (page 16).

These strips are always well presented (except for one or two little errors in the index, but who really cares?) with a great cover design style. I get a bit OCD when bringing these books to the dining table (two sheets of kitchen towels below the book to keep it clean), because I want them to look good and last a long time - these are books to be treasured.

Must-buy for any Peanuts fan, casual or hardcore. Obviously. Don't wait for Canongate Books to publish this one; at the time of this review they're only up to 1973-1974.
