Coming next fall is another book by Chip Kidd (the man who brought us Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schulz). This 240 page hardcover has been announced both as The Art of Peanuts and as Only What’s Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and Peanuts. Published by Abrams ComicArts, the book will include two posters. Kidd will design the book and provide much of the text, with other text by Jeannie Schulz and Paige Braddock, plus an introduction by Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney.
(Add all the “65th Anniversary” books to the inevitable movie tie-in books, and next year will be another heavy one for those of us who accumulate Peanuts books!)
