From Harry Mccracken’s Technologizer:

Several generations of us grew up on paperbacks that collected Schulz’s cartooning. The app lets you download and read digital replicas of some of those classic anthologies, such as Let’s Face It, Charlie Brown and Sunday’s Fun Day, Charlie Brown. But the Schulz estate, which has digitized and cataloged all 17,000 daily and SundayPeanuts strips, is also creating new themed compilations done in a similar style to the old-school books. There’s one that collects strips about Linus and the Great Pumpkin, one that features the gloriously grimy Pig-Pen, one involving Charlie Brown’s unsuccessful attempts at kite-flying, a decade-by-decade series of baseball strips and numerous others.

Most are $1.99 or $2.99, but there are also free samples, including an entire 1959 collection; new collections are available on an ongoing basis. It’s wonderful to revisit strips I haven’t read since I was nine, but never forgot–and to encounter others for the first time.
