Publisher Comments:

Charles M. Schulz (1922andndash;2000) believed that the key to cartooning was to take out the extraneous details and leave in only whatandrsquo;s necessary. For 50 years, from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, Schulz wrote and illustrated Peanuts, the single most popular and influential comic strip in the world. In all, 17,897 strips were published, making it andldquo;arguably the longest story ever told by one human being,andrdquo; according to Robert Thompson, professor of popular culture at Syracuse University. For Only Whatandrsquo;s Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and the Art of Peanuts, renowned designer Chip Kidd was granted unprecedented access to the extraordinary archives of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, California. Reproducing the best of the Peanuts newspaper strip,all shot from the original art by award-winning photographer Geoff Spear, Only Whatandrsquo;s Necessary also features exclusive, rare, and unpublished original art and developmental workandmdash;much of which has never been seen before.

Review:

"This slipcased, scrapbook-style homage to Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts commemorates the comic strip's 60th anniversary. Mined from the Schulz museum and family archives, photographs, booklets, prints, and removable reproductions (such as a Peanuts-themed 'scrapbook' for the Ford Falcon) document the evolution of characters like Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Snoopy. The volume of merchandise on display makes evident the comic's cultural influence, but readers may be surprised to learn of the comic's social impact: a 1968 letter (included as a reproduction) implores Schulz to diversify the cast: 'It occurred to me today that the introduction of Negro children... could happen with a minimum of impact' (Schulz then introduced Franklin). And following the publication of Silent Spring in 1962, Lucy mentions that her baseball bat is signed by Rachel Carson. Discussions of Schulz's 2000 death and Peanuts themes like 'unrequited love' may bring a tear to the eyes of steadfast fans. The comic's spirit of quiet wisdom resonates through the carefully compiled memorabilia. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
