Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Special Comic Page for Look Magazine Original Art (United Features Syndicate, 1958). In 1958, cartoonist Charles Schulz was earning $90,000 a year writing and drawing his newspaper comic strip, Peanuts. It appeared that year in 355 papers nationwide, plus another 40 foreign papers. Look Magazine, one of the most popular publications of the day, took interest in Schulz, and spotlighted him and his cartoon creations in an article titled "A Handful of Peanuts," which saw print in the July 22, 1958 issue. For that article, Schulz prepared this special page, which looks like a strange hybrid of Daily and Sunday strip formats. It's a classic look at Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and Charlie's tag-team tormentors, Patty and Violet. This extremely rare seventeen-panel page has not been seen since the original publication, and was not included in the recent Complete Peanuts 1957 to 1958 volume. The ink on bristol page has an image area of 19.5" x 15" and is stamped with Schulz's address on the back; there is some minor staining along the outer edges, and the images has a couple of small pencil marks, but otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
