I’m in the middle of an early spring cleaning, so I’ve made room for…more stuff. Good thing this caught my eye when it did. An all-time masterpiece, right up there with immovable feasts like Calvin And Hobbes, there’s a new collection of Peanuts waiting to delight.
Since their original publication, Peanuts Sundays have almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white. But many who read Peanuts in their original Sunday papers remain fond of the striking coloring, which makes for a surprisingly different reading experience. This gift box set houses the first golden age of Peanuts Sundays in one gorgeous, full-color coffee table book. Linus, Charlie Brown, Pig-Pen, Shermy, Violet, Sally, Patty, and Schroeder are all present, but the rising star is undoubtedly Snoopy. Peanuts Every Sunday: The 1950s Gift Box Set has been scrupulously re-colored to match the original syndicate coloring ― allowing readers to plunge into Charles Schulz’s marvelous world.
