The Art of Charles Schultz

One of my favorite books that I own is Peanuts: the art of Charles Schultzstyle=border:none. Its rich, close-up photography of the yellowing newsprint pages are so warm and inviting. It also includes a biography, rare memorabilia, sketches by Shultz as well as images of the original inked artwork from the strip. Even though I’ve had the book for a few years now, I never get tired of immersing myself in the evolution of Shultz’s talent and the Peanuts characters.

There was a time in my life when I very much wanted to be a syndicated comic strip artist. Occasionally my fancies take me down that path even now and usually it’s encounters with this book that trigger such wanderings.
