Few artists have captured the essence of the American middle class with the warmth, gentle humor, and charm of Norman Rockwell. Remembered for the several generations of The Saturday Evening Post covers he illustrated, Rockwell had a genius for creating stop-action scenes—an art student racing to her next class, a small dog stubbornly blocking traffic—moments with which viewers could easily identify. This book of postcards offers 30 of Rockwell’s most treasured story-telling images.

Norman Rockwell (American, 1894–1978) accepted his first commission at 16, and by 20 he was the art director for The Boy Scouts of America’s magazine Boys’ Life. His art career was off and running. To this day, few artists have captured the essence of everyday America with the warmth, humor, and kindness Rockwell brought to his illustrative work. A master of painterly technique, he turned a highly perceptive eye to the details that made his subjects uniquely American, and as his career progressed, his covers for The Saturday Evening Post brought him worldwide recognition. Judy Goffman Cutler, of the American Illustrators Gallery in New York, remarked, “In delivering a distillation of the way we wanted to see our country, his art reflected the currents of American life. By the 1940s Rockwell had become a living national treasure.”
