Published in association with the Norman Rockwell Museum at Stockbridge, this imaginatively-designed pop-up book is a novel way of experiencing the art of Norman Rockwell-- America's best known and easily most beloved artist.
Tour Rockwell's famed studio, a New England schoolroom, a period salon, the New England landscape peopled with Rockwell's endearing characters, and the museum established for celebrating his art. The accompanying full-color pullout takes a look at Rockwell's life, his inspirations, and his world famous art from his Saturday Evening Post covers to his splendid view of small-town America.

This compact package contains both an illustrated brochure on Norman Rockwell, the beloved American artist, and a little book that unfolds to create a warren of cardboard rooms representing cozy scenes from his paintings. The brochure offers a rather clipped summary of Rockwell's career, but it does contain a few choice bits (his first studio was in the attic of a bordello--something he and his fellow art students seem not to have noticed). Though the book's covers are charmingly tied with ribbon, and when opened it creates a kind of dollhouse, with rooms and paper pop-up figures that can be moved around, it is probably not intended as a toy. Instead, it would make an ideal holiday "card," or a mantelpiece memento of Norman Rockwell's paintings and Saturday Evening Post covers. --Peggy Moorman
