THE FAMILY CIRCUS BY REQUEST: Published by GUIDEPOSTS BOOKS in 1998 & written be BIL KEANE. 200 Keepsake cartoons, MANY never published before in book form. The first collection ever of my cartoons most newspaper readers have asked to see in a book. Compiling this was a cinch! (Look at all the help I have). BIL KEANE draws THE FAMILY CIRCUS in his home studio for one hundred million readers daily. A former Philadelphia newspaper artist, he and his wife moved with their five small children to Arizona in 1959. Basing the characters and ideas on his own family, BIL created THE FAMILY CIRCUS in 1960. Since then this unique reflection of American life has won many awards, evoked laughter and tears, and has been called a national institution. “I didn’t know it could be so wonderful living in an institution,” says BIL. “I now follow my nine grandchildren around for ideas. They think GRANDDAD is gazing at them lovingly and I’m out to exploit them.” Youngest son JEFF, 40 years old, is now his dad’s assistant on the feature. As the model for JEFFY, BIL claims JEFF was once a little nuisance around the studio. “Now he’s over six feet tall and a BIG nuisance around the studio!” And, obviously, a big help. As you read through these classic cartoons, which have been handcolored especially for this book, you will readily see why they have been chosen to be featured here.
