Above: the iconic jagged line that instantly tells you just whose shirt this is. I had no idea how many times this image has recurred. From left, some samples from publishing and textiles: a 2000 OSU exhibit catalog (designed by my friend Frank Pauer), a Charlie Brown yellow shirt that you can buy, and the cover of the new SCHULZ AND PEANUTS biography. I wonder why oh why does the SCHULZ AND PEANUTS cover art (which may or may not be the final art) seem to be a machined replica of the famous zig-zag. It should at least appear to be from the inky hand of Mr. Schulz.
There are number of good links for David Michaelis' forthcoming SCHULZ AND PEANUTS biography of Charles Schulz. These will help keep one sated until its arrival in October
