Norman Rockwell's Christmas Book
Harry N. Abrams, 30 בספט׳ 1993 - 222 עמודים
Christmas comes but once a year: a Christmas book like this comes but once in a lifetime. First, the illustrations are by America's best-loved artist, Norman Rockwell, and the book, like Rockwell himself, is made up of equal parts of love, good cheer, gentleness, and humor. Then, this rich Yuletide feast includes not only stories and poems but the words "and" music of many songs--and they run the full gamut of Christmas moods, from tender reminiscence to rollicking jollity.
The pictures--83 plates in full color and 12 in black-and-white--have been chosen from Rockwell's entire body of work to illustrate the many varied Christmas themes. Some lucky readers will come to these marvelously human and true-to-life pictures afresh; others, equally fortunate, will come to them with remembrance and affection.
