Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Hardcover
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.
