Charles M. Schulz, Dean Young and Charles Bragg sign on this FDC honoring the Love Stamp
Original Art on First Day Cover Signed: "Schulz", "With Best Wishes,/Dean/Young" and "Charles Bragg", 6½x3¾. First Day Cover for the Love Stamp, 20-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Washington, DC, January 31, 1984, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000), a freelance cartoonist with "The Saturday Evening Post" (1948-1949), originally titled his single-panel cartoon about life's funny happenings "Li'l Folks". It debuted as a panel strip on October 2, 1950 as "Peanuts", a name Schulz disliked. Each strip was personally drawn, written, inked and lettered by "Sparky" Schulz, who created the strips in his office at One Snoopy Place and drank coffee at the Warm Puppy snack Bar. He died on February 12, 2000, the evening before his last "Peanuts" strip appeared in the Sunday editions of newspapers. Before Schulz's death, the strip was reproduced in a number of popular books, and his loveable characters were also seen on television and in feature films as well as on a wide variety of licensed "Peanuts" products. Schulz' award-winning work - he was Cartoonist of the Year in 1955 and again in 1965 - is still syndicated as "Classic Peanuts". In 1963, Dean Young (b. 1938), began assisting his father, Blondie creator Murat B. "Chic" Young, who first published Blondie on Sept. 8, 1930. After Chic Young died in 1973, Dean continued producing the strip, first working with Chic's long-time artist Jim Raymond until 1981, then with Mike Gersher (1981-1984), Stan Drake (1984 until Drake's death in 1997), Denis Lebrun (1997-2005) and currently with John Marshall. Blondie is featured in 2,000 newspapers in 55 countries (in 35 languages), and Young has also published several Blondie compilations and created a Blondie presence in cyberspace. Painter, sculptor and author Charles Bragg (b. 1931) has been called America's "foremost social satire artist." Widely exhibited in museums and galleries, Bragg's art has been commissioned by Playboy and documented in a PBS program. He won a Gold Medal from the National Society of Illustrators and an Award of Merit from the Art Directors Guild of New York. Fine condition.
