9780316086103: The Peanuts Collection: Treasures from the World's Most Beloved Comic Strip

This fully authorized, one-of-a-kind illustrated book celebrates the 60th anniversary of the world's most beloved comic strip characters. A compendium of rare materials from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and family archives, The Peanuts Collection comes in a sturdy slipcase and features high-quality reproductions of original sketches, comics, and photographs from the world of Peanuts. Removable film cels, stickers, and booklets are included, as well as reproduction prints of Peanuts artwork ready for framing. Written by Peanuts aficionado Nat Gertler, with quotes from Schulz family members and a foreword by daughter Amy Schulz Johnson, the text offers insight into the making of the comic strip and its impact beyond the realms of newspapers and books to film, television, and popular culture. The Peanuts Collection is a must-own keepsake for anyone who loves Snoopy and the gang.

About the Author:

Nat Gertler is the founder and author of Aaugh.com, a comprehensive resource for Peanuts collectors and fans. Gertler has written for Speed Racer, Flintstones, and NASCAR Adventures. He has authored horror works for Pocket Books, written a number of titles in the Complete Idiot's Guide series, contributes regularly to Hogan's Alley, a comics-related magazine, and is the founder and publisher of packager About Comics.

From Booklist:

It’s been a decade since the death of cartoonist Charles Schulz, but the popularity of his comic strip Peanuts shows no signs of abating: reprints of vintage strips appear in 2,200 newspapers, TV adaptations remain perennially popular, and Charlie Brown and his friends continue to adorn T-shirts worldwide. The millions of die-hard fans who sustain the strip’s success will delight in this lavish offering, which draws on the holdings of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and the family’s archives. The succinctly informative text, along with a representative handful of strips, is the crux of the volume, but the bulk is devoted to a motley yet fascinating assemblage of memorabilia: rare photos, preliminary sketches, toys and games, promotional materials, and advertisements featuring the characters. Scrapbook-type items are housed in pouches, including coloring-book pages, a facsimile animation cell, trading cards, and even correspondence from fans. The result is a treasure trove for Peanutophiles. Libraries that have had circulation success with the recent volumes reprinting the entire 50-year run of Peanuts should supplement that series with this lovingly curated tribute. --Gordon Flagg
