The Peanuts Collection


Treasures from the world's most beloved comic strip, Nat Gertler

Full Description

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.

My Review:
This book's title does not lie.  It is a treasure of treasures!  I thought it was going to be a kind of cute picture book and I would review it in a night or two.   Not true! It has provided night after night of reading and enjoying the whole book.  From the moment I opened the book, I was enchanted.  Page after page is loaded with surprise after surprise.  It is the best collection of history, and artifacts of the Peanuts Gang that I have seen.  I adored it.  I could tell you all little perks and details, but to do so would wreck the complete euphoric treats that are bestowed upon discovering the contents.  As I opened the book and squealed with each surprise, my husband came over to the sofa and joined me on this wonderful journey into the history of Peanuts.  We slowly turned pages and examined the artifacts.   It is an exquisite collection of artistically presented gems for all Peanuts junkies.   Fans everywhere will be delighted.  It is the perfect gift.  I can't part with  mine but will keep it in mind for gift giving this holiday season.

Thank you Anna from Hachette Books.

I will say the first photo doesn't do the book justice.  The book is large and thick and really quite a beauty for the coffee table.  It comes encased in a nice hard cover that slips over the book.  Oh what the heck.  I will show you one photo. 

Cheers!

Just hoping you're okay since you haven't posted in awhile.

But probably you're just getting eaten up by pre-Christmas!

My daughter loved the Peanuts when she was a child. I will consider the books for my new grandchild when he arrives.
