What do you get for the Peanuts fan who has everything? Bigger bookshelves.
I was sitting here, thinking how hectic I am for the next few days, who I’ve not time for anything, when the Peanuts Book Fairy drove his big brown box truck up and dropped off two books. Now by goodness, I don’t have time to read all the way through them, but by goodness, I cannot help but to flip through at least one of them. And me oh my, did the person who designed Peanuts Every Sunday Volume 2 for Fantagraphics (Jacob Covery) make some good choices. The cover and framing material is all big beautiful shot of primarily aggressive Peanuts images, and that means big, mean Lucy. Lovely.
This book is all the Sunday strips from 1956 through 1960, presented large, full color. Think about that. Prime Peanuts presented in prime form. You could slam this down in front of anyone, and it would be seen as a big book of lovely stuff. This is top-notch gift material, not just for the Peanuts addict. The book ships in early November, preorder price is pretty good for this big item, so go order away!
