Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schulz
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.

Peanuts: A Golden Celebration
Charles M. Schulz has been cartooning for an astonishing 50 years (the "Peanuts" strip itself debuted October 2, 1950, but he drew an earlier incarnation called "Li'l Folks" before that). Peanuts: A Golden Celebration is a remarkable collection of strips spanning that time period. Readers get to see the first appearance of Linus, Marcy, Pigpen, and Woodstock, and even the momentous first time Lucy holds a football for Charlie Brown to kick. Schulz comments on the cartoons and his inspirations via notes in the margin, ranging from boyhood stories about his father (a barber, just like Charlie Brown's) to an account of the time the narcolepsy experts at Stanford University expressed concerns over Peppermint Patty's constant sleeping in class. One of the most interesting inclusions is that of several letters of complaint, ranging from readers whose religious sensibilities have been offended to a 1969 missive from Schulz's own syndicate asking him not to depict Franklin in the same school as the white students anymore. Naturally, the much-loved "Peanuts" holiday specials are covered, as is the musical adaptation You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, but it's the strips that really make the book. Readers can follow the evolution of Schulz's drawing style--deliberately less realistic as the years went on--and even check out a few panels drawn by Schulz's own cartooning heroes. This is a terrific compilation that serves well both as a chronicle of popular culture and as just a really funny collection of comic strips. Don't wait for the Great Pumpkin to bring you one.

Description from Amazon.com


Will Charlie Brown ever get to kick the footballs? Will Schroeder finally return Lucy's love? Will Linus give up his security blanket? Will Peppermint Party ever pass a test? And, most importantly will Snoopy--that canine literary ace--ever be published?

"To take a blank piece of paper and draw characters that people love and worry about is extremely satisfying. It really does not matter what you are called or where your work is placed as long as it brings some kind of joy to some person some place." -- Charles Schulz

Peanuts: A Golden Celebration honors the momentous 50th anniversary of Charlie Brown and the gang with over 1,000 carefully selected strips that tell the story of Peanutslike no other book before. In Schulz's own words we learn how he came to create the world's most popular comic strip characters from nostalgic and sometimes painful memories of growing up--such as the agony of classroom Valentine exchange and the longing for a little red-haired girl.

From the debut of Peanuts on October 2, 1950, to the golden jubilee, here are fifty years of the favorite episodes and the..."firsts," such as the first time Lucy pulled the football away from Charlie Brown. Included are scenes from the beloved Charlie Brown television. specials and the latest revival of the Broadway musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

These are the strips and events that have made Peanuts an awesome phenomenon, appearing in 2,600 newspapers worldwide everyday. Not bad for a round-headed kid called Charlie Brown.

Let the celebration begin!

Peanuts Treasury
As the creator of Peanuts, the world's most widely read comic strip, Charles Schulz (1922-2000) touched the hearts and funny bones of millions of people, with his work appearing in more than two thousand newspapers around the world and translated into twenty-one languages. Through such lovable characters as Charlie Brown and Snoopy (not to mention the rest of the Peanuts gang), Schulz created, in the words of Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau, "the uncontested gold standard for comics," and paved the road for future cartoonists. The Peanuts Treasury is a fitting testimony to Charles Schulz's enduring legacy and will stand for years to come as a loving tribute to one of the most influential cartoonists of all time.

Description from Publisher


If you are a Peanuts fan, then this is the book for you. It is not expensive, and I note there are some comments on the quality of the print, but this is a comic strip! How often have you peered at your favourite comic in some tatty old newspaper? The strips aren't in any particular order, but what I like about it is that you can pick it up and open it at any page for a few moments of delight. All the characters are there, in all the situations you recognise them - Charlie Brown on the pitcher's mound, Snoopy on his kennel, Lucy as psychiatrist and so on. Just what Peanuts is all about. I think this is a great book to have lying around, and remember, it is a book of comic strips designed to entertain and amuse.

Charlie Brown: Not Your Average Blockhead
One of the most popular characters in the history of comic strips, Charlie Brown, the focus of the first Peanuts daily on October 2, 1950, continues in his humble, hilarious and sometimes wishy-washy ways in this charming collection of "Good ol" Charlie Brown" comic strips.

Did you know that Charlie Brown was named for a friend with whom Charles M. Schultz worked at Art Instruction, Inc. correspondence school? Charlie Brown (the man) inspired Schultz to draw what he calls Charlie Brown's "round, ordinary face." This ordinary face became symbolic of "everyman" everywhere; who went on to become the world's most beloved loser. The Charlie Brown we know and love is the brunt of the Peanuts gang's jokes, manager of a baseball team that has never won and is hopelessly devoted to his unrequited love, "the little red-headed girl." We also know that he has a heart of gold and is a devoted friend.

The pages of Charlie Brown: Not Your Average Blockhead celebrate everything about the kid with the funny squiggle on his head and familiar zigzag shirt. The classic strips and special interactive features in each chapter will keep you turning page after page and bursting with laughter.

With a foreward by Andrea Podley, the founder and editor of the world-wide Peanuts Collectors Club, and with an introduction by Charles M. Schultz himself, this treasury is a must for Charlie Brown and Peanuts fans everywhere.

Lucy: Not Just Another Pretty Face
Making her debut in 1952, just two short years after the Peanuts comic strip first ran, Lucy Van Pelt burst into the popular daily, becoming the high-voltage catalyst to ignite the comedic fire under the lovable members of the original Peanuts gang. Lucy's take-charge attitude and annoying self-confidence immediately cast her as one of the favorite characters of the strip as well as an unlikely, but powerful, role model for men and women alike. To ardent fans of the strip, she is best loved for being bossy and charmingly crabbya disposition that is solely her own.

Lucy: Not Just Another Pretty Face celebrates all of the wit, wisdom, and relentless criticism that Lucy has to offer in an unprecedented collection of strips devoted especially to her. Whether she is leaning on Schroeder's piano or counseling good ol' Charlie Brown, her flawless advice and zany antics have kept Peanuts fans laughing and learning for more than 45 years. Classic strips and special interactive features in each chapter keep the pages turning and the laughs coming.

With an introduction by Charles M. Schulz, you'll learn more about the evolution of Lucy's unique personality and how it has changed over the decades. Lucy: Not Just Another Pretty Face is an outstanding treasury for every Lucy devotee's library. As the original dominant female character in Peanuts, it is easy to see why she is considered the brains and the beauty of the strip! "That'll be five cents, please!"

Schulz's boyhood pet dog, Snoopy has evolved from Charlie Brown's silent, four-legged companion into a multifaceted, philosophical and wonderfully imaginative native character.

This unprecedented keepsake treasury showcases the lovable beagle's many colorful personalities -- from Joe Cool to the World War I Flying Ace, Golf Pro, Literary Ace and so many more. Whether he's piloting his Sopwith Camel, leading the Beagle Scouts on retreat or simply waiting for a filled supper dish, you can always count on Snoopy to be entertaining.

In the foreword, Schulz describes his inspiration for Snoopy and the evolution of this popular beagle into the character that the world knows today.
