This large coffee-table style book is an in-depth collection of the art illustrations of Norman Rockwell. This book was written by Thomas S. Buechner. He truly gives us a gift with this book showing the life and art of Norman Rockwell. This book is hard covered (cloth covered). It measures about 17" X 12 3/4". I find this book to be in very good condition. It is from a private collection and has been well taken care of. There are no tears, stains or marks on the pages that I can see.
