Synopsis

Peanuts: a Scanimation Book by Rufus Butler Seder

Good grief, the gang's all here! Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, and, of course, Snoopy these cherished characters from the most popular comic strip of all time meet the magic of Scanimation. Ten memorable scenes in clear and colorful Scanimations, with smooth-flowing, detailed images are brought to life in the book, each accompanied by the inspiring words of wisdom from Charles M. Schulz that make PEANUTS so special. Charlie Brown runs to launch his kite, with the caption Sometimes there are things you just can t resist doing. Snoopy does his happy dance: To dance is to live. Lucy skips rope: Life is more than just lying around. Plus Schroeder plays the piano, Snoopy battles the Red Baron, Sally dances with Linus, and Charlie Brown tries to kick and of course, as he will for all eternity, misses the football. PEANUTS is one of the most beloved and best-known brands of all time. Every day over 45 million people read the strip; its animated specials have aired on television for the past fifty years (growing in popularity A Charlie Brown Christmas was the highest-rated prime time special in 2012); it has millions of Facebook fans; and in 2015, to celebrate the 65th anniversary of PEANUTS, 20th Century Fox will release a 3D animated movie. And now, Scanimation. It's PEANUTS funny and wise and beloved, forever a part of our lives like you've never seen before.

About the Author

Rufus Butler Seder is an artist, filmmaker, and inventor who has been fascinated with antique optical toys-and the principles behind them-since he was young. About twenty years ago he wondered if he could make a new sort of moving picture using no electricity, special lighting, or moving parts. After much experimentation he developed Lifetiles, optical glass-tiled murals that appear to come to life, move, and change when the viewer walks or rides by. For the past sixteen years Rufus has been designing large-scale, permanent installations of these movies for the wall in aquariums, science museums, train stations, and other public places around the globe. The worldwide success of Lifetiles inspired Rufus to found EyeThink, Inc., a company that develops and produces a line of optically animated toys and gifts based on the technologies he invented and patented on his Lifetile installations. One of these innovations, a patented process called Scanimation, is the technology behind Peanuts. Rufus lives in Boston. Peanuts is his seventh book.
