About the Author
Norman Rockwell (1894–1978) was a 20th-century American painter known for his illustrations of everyday life. His most famous works were created for the Saturday Evening Post magazine, including Rosie the Riveter, Saying Grace, and the Four Freedoms series. The Norman Rockwell Museum holds more than 574 paintings and drawings by the artist, and is located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where Rockwell spent the last 25 years of his life.

Something especially nice about this 224pp book is that there are EIGHT full color plates that are removable for framing, while still leaving an exact copy of the same picture in the book. The pictures are arranged in grouping pertaining to particular patriotic themes. The book makes a nice gift for someone of a certain age and should offend no one. Again, let me stress, although the book has an abundance of written material all attributed to other various famous authors, poets, and songwriters, and etc. you should only consider this purchase for a chance to view the artists works in your own home if you can't travel to Stowbridge, MA to see the originals in person. It is simply nostalgia and desire for a way of life that we would all like to believe in.
Eight pictures are removable for framing if desired.

This collection of Rockwell's paintings is a perfect coffee table book. Classic photos of the paintings and even posters to hang. Definitely a must-buy.Published on October 31, 2013 by phantomsgirl
Quality is good, but they fail to identify the names of the pictures, that was a big disappointment. Thought there might be some comments about the paintings, but there aren't. Read morePublished on March 2, 2013 by PJ
