About the Author

Christopher Finch was born in Guernsey, Channel Islands, in 1939 and came to the United States in 1968 to join the curatorial staff of the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis. His books include the best sellers Norman Rockwell's America, The Art of Walt Disney, and Rainbow, a biography of Judy Garland, which was turned into a film. His other books, as well as many articles for magazines on both sides of the Atlantic, have dealt with various aspects of contemporary painting and popular culture. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Christopher Finch was born in Guernsey in the British Channel Islands, and now lives in Los Angeles. He is an artist and a photographer who has had one person shows in New York and California, and he is the author of almost thirty non-fiction books including the best sellers Rainbow: the Stormy Life of Judy Garland, The Art of Walt Disney, Jim Henson: the Works, and Norman Rockwell's America. Recently he has embarked on a series of noir-inflected mystery novels set in New York in the late 1960s and featuring the private investigator Alex Novalis. The first of these, Good Girl, Bad Girl, is to be published by Thomas & Mercer in 2013. These books draw on his own experiences in the New York art world at a time when today's SoHo was an urban wilderness with rats frolicking in the gutters and artists eking out a living in barren loft spaces. He is married to Linda Rosenkrantz, an author and a co-founder of the website Nameberry.

Format: Hardcover
To say that you can spend hours browsing through this wonderful collection is an understatement. This is a book that can be savored over a lifetime.
It shows the progression of Rockwell's art from his early, almost Victorian style covers, to his most famous illustrations, to his political portraits. It always annoys me that people claim he is an illustrator, not an artist. Simply because these pictures tell a story should not detract from their artistic merit.
This volume has them all. From the beautiful, awkward, girl at the Mirror, Doctor's appointment and countless others that are not as well known, but still great! So many of these paintings allow us to learn more about America (Can you get much more American than Norman Rockwell?). His GI- Willie Gillis is truly everyman during WWII. We seem enjoying a hometown newspaper, on leave, with his comrades, and finally as a student on the GI Bill. So many ideas are timeless. The chronicle of a day in the life of a boy or girl seem to embody childhood. Commuters on a platform captures the rise of suburbia. THe one of a son sitting with his father and dog about to leave for college captures that bittersweet moment on the cusp of adolescence.
The sunlit, yet dusty, Marriage Liscense is generally recognized as art, but others should be too. I hope that with the recent Rockwell exhibets a new generation of Americans will appreciate this wodnerful artist who captured so much of our lives!
This is a great addition to any collection- you will never tire of looking through it!

Format: Hardcover
If you can only have one Norman Rockwell book, look no further. This is the quintessential Norman Rockwell. You can spend hours and hours looking at the illustrations and still not fully grasp all the subtle nuances - like the cameo paintings within the painting; the relections in the mirror; the advertisements in the folded newspapers; and so on. I have only found one inconsistency. In "The Clock Mender" some areas in the painting make an abrupt departure from his trademark quasi-realistic style. It reminds me of Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon". Was Rockwell cleverly introducing "Surrealism" into this particular painting, in an inverted Salvador Dali sort of way? Or was the original painting simply damaged and then retouched by someone else? It would make delightful reading if Mr Finch, or anyone else, could offer an explanation.

This would be a wonderful book for Rockwell's fans BUT the poor quality of the printing and the copies of illustrations made me regret buying it.

It still makes a nice book on the shelf.

Although there are plenty of large prints of his work the quality here is terrible! The colours are washed out and grainy, doing Rockwell a great disservice by not being a true representation of his amazing work, Very disappointed I bought this.

This is not a review of Rockwells work as much as it is about the quality of the book. Its a nice big book , with one cover following the other. the quality of color is a bit sub standard and the descriptions at the end make things a bit hard to flip back and forth. A brilliant collection ofcourse but not as nice as I expected. Tom rockwell's best of Norman Rockwell is smaller but way better print quality. I do recommend this book ofcourse for the genius and technique of a great american master.

So, lets start with the good things about this book: It's thorough. You get a great review of Rockwell's styles as they change through the years. You can almost see exactly when he began using a camera to set up his illustrations. It's a great reference catalogue.

Then there are the bad things: Most notably, while the description talks about "full size format" I actually bought the 'Tiny Folio' edition. Which has 4" square pages - so any real use of the book is thwarted. I bought the small size because Amazon's website confusingly led me to it through the used Marketplace FROM the page of the original sized book! Here I thought I was getting a great deal on a good book...instead I got a novelty item.

That being said, even a full sized book would leave the viewer wanting to see better reproductions (or best of all - the actual painting). Seeing Rockwell's paintings in person is no match for even the best reproductions.

I'm not going to return the book because the error was mine (albeit on a thoroughy confusing website).

This is real art. These covers are traditional Americana as it was or at least should have been in the America Norman Rockwell so loved. Study each of these works and you'll be rewarded with an innumerable collection of tiny "extras" this master hid in his paintings. This is a great gathering of very fine and highly charming visual stories.

I love Norman Rockwell paintings, and I jump at the chance to see his works when possible. So when I found this book at my local book store, I was thrilled to have such a massive collection of Rockwell's paintings in one collection on my bookshelf. Sadly, in my stupor over my find, I failed to fully inspect the prints as closely as I should have, otherwise I would have noticed how washed and faded the colors are on all of the prints (the exception being the cover sleeve, which was more vibrant than the print found in the books pages). It's sad that so much of the color is just absent from the paintings, but I suppose that's what happens when a publisher cares more about money than about quality. Save your pennies folks and just go see the real things in a museum when they come through your neck of the woods.
