GENRE: Comics & Graphic Novels
Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) believed that the key to cartooning was to take out the extraneous details and leave in only what’s necessary. For 50 years, from October 1950 to February 2000, Schulz wrote and illustrated Peanuts, the single most popular and influential comic strip in the world.
For “Only What’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strip, all shot from the original art by award-winning photographer Geoff Spear, it also features exclusive, rare and unpublished original art and developmental work - much of which has never been seen before.
