5.0 out of 5 stars Norman Rockwell's America 3 May 2013
By Brooks
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my American husband who has long been an admirer of Norman Rockwell's work. He remembers a lot of the pictures, magazine covers etc., from his childhood, and the book brought back lots of memories.

Norman's pictures are so appealing, especially those of rosy cheeked children and family gatherings, and his depictions of adults in different situations can be related to by most people. One series of pictures I liked in particular is of the 'Gossips.' The book is reminiscent of times when family life and work ethics were important to the majority.

All the Norman Rockwell books would make a great collection in any library.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Americanna 21 Mar 2005
By R. L. Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Great book with 659 illustrations and biography of Norman Rockwell written by Christopher Finch. Rockwell's life span (1894 to 1978) is depicted in his paintings and illustrations including Saturday Evening Post, Boys Life and portraits of the United States Presidents of his time. He captured the every day events and human expressions in his unique style that is very heart warming. This is a true classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Life 14 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Christopher Finch has captured Norman Rockwell's magnificent and intriguing use of art to compile a work of American History. Each painting featured in the book is an amusing, yet truthful look at American life in the early 1900's and on. This book is a must to have in any home library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Rockwell book--recommend above others 6 May 2008
By silky69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I like this book for the excellent quality of prints throughout. I also has several fold-out prints that could be used for framing, and a lot of prints that I have not seen before in other books. Nice.
