Reviews about Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell from the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg (7):

I am old enough that I remember Norman Rockwell covers on magazines on the newstands. I loved his pictures.
I have a collection of art books on Norman Rockwell and this one is by far one of the most beautiful and most fun to read and enjoy. The collections of Lucas and Spielberg are an interesting angle and I liked figuring out why they would have bought these particular paintings.
The photos and describtions of Rockwell's artistic process and preparation for the painting was fascinating. I did not expect to get that wonderful information. I thought this was going to be just a collection of the paintings and this book was more than just page after page of images. It was a real art and almost biographical book about Rockwell.

I traveled to Washington D.C. recently and saw the exhibit of the Norman Rockwell
collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg at the American Museum of Art.
I enjoyed it very much and purchased the book for my local art guild so I could share what I saw at the exhibit and revisit some my favorite paintings. The book is wonderful. Most of the pictures are large and their colors are great. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes his work whether your an artist or not. The book was as impressive as the exhibit. Large book with a lot of information.

I love anything with Norman Rockwell/s art, and I was getting this as a gift for someone that likes his work as well as I do.

I ordered this book after listening to an interview with the author, Virginia Mecklenberg.I've loved Norman Pockwell's illustrations having grown up with his magazine covers. I found this book to be a stunning collection of some of Rockwell's most evocative and enjoyable work. The information about his art and his creative process as well as the pictures themselves make this a wonderful addition to my library.

I have seen Norman Rockwell's work in Mass.and wanted a copy of the work that was exhibited in Washington.
This is a wonderful book.
I intend to use it with my students in my art class.
