I have extensive library, including nearly every book on Norman Rockwell, and this one is my favorite next to his autobiography "MY ADVENTURES AS AN ILLUSTRATOR". This book, "ROCKWELL ON ROCKWELL," is lavishly illustrated, and more importantly, Rockwell walks the reader thru his working methods from sketching ideas to the finished painting. Very informative to both the art student and the working professional artist/illustrator.

This book is an amazing look into the methods used by Norman Rockwell to achieve the iconic Americana illustrations he produced for the Saturday Evening Post and other magazines during the golden age of illustration. This is a must have for any illustrator interested in this genre. It delivers EXACTLY what it promises.

The book is an excellent insight into the way Rockwell generated and composed his ideas. In hindsight if one is familiar with his work, it makes perfect sense. The unspoken truth is his genius in constructing a piece. The are plenty of photo examples to study the evolution of his process. Mr. Rockwell makes the assumption that the reader/artist understands the basics of drawing and painting. This is fine however I for one would be equally fascinated by an expose of the physical painted evolution that was his approach. This matter is left for the most part untouched.

By Rico Lebrun on September 25, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is the compilation of Rockwells writings for his brief tenure at the Famous Artist School. The lessons presented are a thorough and systematic explanation of his approach. To a point, that is. The book has seven chapters. One: Getting the Picture Idea, Two: How to Select Models, Three: The Importance of Detail, Four: Poses and Props, Five: Making the Charcoal Drawing, Six: Making the Color Sketch...Good so far, right. This is the make up of most of the book and we haven't even gotten to the painting part. Ah, well, Chapter Seven: The final Painting. Eight quick pages on how to do the final painting. My understanding is that Rockwell never got to finish his lessons at the Famous Artist School resulting is this book with an all to brief explanation on the actual painting process. This is an excellent book that gives a very nice overview of R's process but don't expect to get much in regards to the actual painting.

Everything was fine with this purchase. The seller explained that the interior was in good condition and that only the dust-cover had some slight water damage which was true. It was shipped in a timely manner and I am satisfied. What more needs to be said?
