About The Book:
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.

My Thoughts:

All I can say is that if you're going to purchase something special for yourself or a gift for the Peanuts lovers in your family, this is the one you want. It's fabulous, special in every way! Every page you turn offers new discoveries, little treasure tucked in every nook. It's like a fairytale book for adults. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading this collection. I learned so many things I didn't know about the comic strip and its creator. I can't think of any way the book could be improved. I hope you'll check it out for yourself.
