Charles M. Schulz's A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Making of a Tradition is a lushly illustrated tribute to the beloved television classic that takes readers behind-the-scenes of the Peanuts holiday special that has aired each year since December 1965.
A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Making of a Tradition includes the script of the Emmy Award–winning A Charlie Brown Christmas, more than two hundred full-color pieces of original animation art, Vince Guaraldi's original score and publication notes for the songs "Christmas Time Is Here" and "Linus and Lucy," and a look at the making of the feature from producer Lee Mendelson and original animator, Bill Melendez.
It also features an essay by Matt Zoller Seitz, then a pop culture columnist at the Newark Star-Ledger, that was published in 1995 to commemorate the special's 30th anniversary.
Fans of Charles M. Schulz, the Peanuts gang, and A Charlie Brown Christmas will treasure this beautiful keepsake volume for years to come.
