Now Amazon is showing this cover for my upcoming book The Snoopy Treasures, different from the one they were showing last month. I have no inside information that I can give you on whether this is the final version. (The title on this version is slightly different as well; it had been “An Illustrated Celebration”. But I’m pretty sure the book will still be heavily illustrated!)
You may recall when Fantagraphics announced their full color Sunday reprint series Peanuts Every Sunday that I pointed out that this could cause some confusion for collectors, as there was an old black-and-white Holt, Rinehart, and Winston collection of the same name.
Well, that confusion may not just be for old collectors. In November, the next volume of the Fanatagraphics series comes out… and then in December, Titan Books is releasing their reprint of the original. How many people are going to order the $5.99 black-and-white paperback thinking they’re getting the large, full-color $49.99 hardcover with twice as many strips?
(Also coming in December is the Titan reprint of Go Fly a Kite, Charlie Brown.)
With the help of this Japanese writing guide, I could soon learn to write Japanese. Which would be really cool. But then I would have to get another book that teaches me how to read Japanese, or I’ll have no idea what I’ll have written.
The book is illustrated with a mix of Peanuts images and non-Peanuts images; pretty stuff, but it clashes.
This was purchased off of eBay, the leading purveyor of unlikely random stuff from around the globe.
