Snoopy steals the spotlight in these carefully color-restored ’60s Peanuts comic strips.
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. The early- to mid-1960s strips in our latest volume 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: 1961-1965 has been scrupulously re-colored to match the original syndicate coloring — allowing readers to plunge into Charles Schulz’s marvelous world.
“These are beautiful books. Full color dust jackets and numbered bindings make for books that look great next to each other on the shelf. But you’ll need a big shelf. ...[F]or the fan, they are a collection absolutely worth having.” — Joel Neff - Boing Boing
“ ...Peanuts Every Sunday: 1961-1965 is stuffed with classics.... This is vintage Schulz at a time when he had perfected his style and voice; Peanuts idealized. When you think of Peanuts, this is really the primary era; these are the gags and conflicts that come to mind, with the versions of the characters that would become iconic, in Schulz’s energetic and economical lines. ... All the gags, social commentary, whimsy, and biting honesty came together in simple, rhythmic page designs and vibrant primary colors. This collection is a particularly good one, with one great strip after another. ” — John Parker - ComicsAlliance
