Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This beautiful album will dazzle fans of Charles M. Schulz and his art, providing an unprecedented look at the work of the most brilliant and beloved cartoonist of the twentieth century. Here is the whole gang-Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, Pig-Pen, and all the others from the original "Peanuts strips.
More than five hundred comic strips are reproduced, as well as such rare or never-before-seen items as a sketchbook from Schulz's army days in the early 1940s; his very first printed strip," Just Keep Laughing; his private scrapbook of pre-"Peanuts Li'l Folks strips; developmental sketches for the first versions of Charlie Brown and the other Peanuts characters; a sketchbook from 1963; and many more materials gathered from the Schulz archives in Santa Rosa, California.
The art has been stunningly photographed by Geoff Spear in full color, capturing the subtle textures of paper, ink, and line. The strips-which were shot only from the original art or vintage newsprint-reveal how, from the 1950s through 2000, Schulz's style and the "Peanuts world evolved. The book features an introduction by Jean Schulz and has been designed and edited by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, who also provides an informed and appreciative commentary.
This celebration of the genius of the most revered cartoonist of our time is a must for anyone who has ever come under the spell of "Peanuts.

"From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 in Minneapolis, the only child of a housewife and a barber. His interest in comics was encouraged by his father, who loved the funny pages. After army duty, Schulz lettered comic pages for "Timeless Topix," and sold seventeen cartoons to "The Saturday Evening Post" from 1948 to 1950 and a feature, " Li'l Folks," to the "St. Paul Pioneer Press." "Peanuts" debuted on October 2, 1950, and ran without interruption for the next fifty years. Schulz died on February 12, 2000, and his last strip ran the next day. "Peanuts" has appeared in 2,600 newspapers in seventy-five countries.

Format: Hardcover
This wonderful book is designed like an album, and is actually a collection of some of Charles M. Schulz's favorite cartoons. Lots of things are included in here, such as items from his sketchbook, early cartoons of his (including Li'l Folks, the Peanuts forbearers), tons of Peanuts cartoons, and even some photos. Indeed, some of the items in this book have never been published before!
This is an absolutely wonderful book! It contains cartoons from all over Schulz's career, bringing back tons of memories (such as the earlier drawings of the baby-like Peanuts). So, if you are a fan of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts, then you must get this book. I highly recommend it!

This is not only the best Peanuts collection I have, but probably the best cartoon collection I have ever seen, and I own about a hundred. It is certainly better than the new complete collection, of which I have bought the first two volumes, as this book lovingly describes the history as the cartoons are presented. The only complaint I have is a trivial one. They have used lots of old cartoons as a sort of wallpaper throughout the book. I know they were not put there to read, but I managed using a magnifying glass. I wish they were a bit bigger, and that none of them were cut off, as they are lovely, historical carttons.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the history of Peanuts. Now I think I shall start reading it again!

Adds to very many Peanuts books on my shelves with a lot of cartoons and stories about them which were missing from all the others. A 'must' for Peanuts fans!
