Book Description

2 Nov 2009
A revised and updated version of the bestselling "Christmas" classic, Norman Rockwell's Christmas book is the ultimate holiday treasury. Originally published by Abrams in 1977, Norman Rockwell's "Christmas Book" is a Christmas classic that has remained a bestseller for over thirty years. With over 85 images from Norman Rockwell's archive of holiday art, this fully redesigned edition brings a fresh, contemporary appeal the original vintage volume. This holiday favourite features timeless art including children sleigh-riding, families caroling and Santa preparing for his big night, in addition to 15 new images culled from Rockwell's extensive archive and eight ready-to-frame limited edition prints. Alongside these lush illustrations are Christmas poems and stories from beloved writers such as Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Hans Christian Anderson and Lewis Carroll; as well as Christmas carol music and lyrics and Christmas dinner recipes from Fannie Merritt Farmer's 1896 cooking tome. Norman Rockwell's "Christmas Book" is the perfect present under the tree for Rockwell fans young and old.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't bother if I were you 7 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I must disagree with the previous reviewer. In a Rockwell book the only thing that matters is, of course, the quality of the illustrations. This is where this book completely fails. There are lot of them, but they are universally awful; grossly oversaturated, high contrast and with heavy colour casts. They look like rushed colour laser copies from the original edition. Many of them are so dark that all the detail is missing from the shadow areas and faces range from deep orange to puce. Considering the enormous lengths our Norman went to with his subtle originals, he would be mortified to see this publication. If the Post had served him this bad, I doubt he would have painted a second cover for them never mind 322.

If you want to appreciate Rockwell's genius, this is not the book to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift 18 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my friends birthday and she loved it. The illustrations are lovely and there are some that you can take out of the book and frame if you want to. A lovely gift with lots of information about the authors life.

Wanted this book for along time - great diverse entertainment enjoyed by everyone at Christmas and all for different reasons - the pullout Christmas scenes are perfect to insert into photo frames and use as decorations
