With the cooperation of The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center the book features dozens of examples of PEANUTS original art juxtaposed with the finished proof dailies, interwoven with colorful magazine covers, Viewmaster slides, game pieces, a lovely double-page spread of the paperback spines of the first series of books, bread labels and well, you name it. This is book that a fan of PEANUTS can randomly open to any single page and be entranced.
The layout of all these different pieces is an outstanding example of how to visually meld such a potpourri of graphic riches into not just eye candy but an illustrative stream that carries the viewer along in a way that the idea behind the journey is what's traveled. In this case, the idea is to understand not just that PEANUTS was the funniest, most human, and finest strip ever published. Rather that it was, and is, and will be a cultural phenomenon that, as yet, has no equal.
Calvin and Hobbes is my favorite, but I can say nothing but great things about Peanuts! Simple, clean, to the point. A true lesson in economy of line and dialogue.
