Norman Rockwell (1894 - 1978) was perhaps America's best-loved and most popular 20th century illustrator. Behind the 24 windows on this calendar are some of his most famous illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post and The Country Gentleman.
Beginning on December 1, open a window each day through December 24, and see how America prepares for its most joyous holiday. Santa at Globe, pictured on the front of the calendar, illustrates Rockwell's gentle sense of humor as Santa, magnifying glass in hand, searches the earth for good boys. Freedom from Want and Freedom to Worship (behind windows 23 and 24) reveal a more serious Rockwell concerned with mankind's well-being.
The calendar measures 11 x 14 inches and comes with an attached easel stand. Its green frame is overprinted with a holly design. Twenty-three windows are in the frame; the 24th window--Freedom to Worship--is in Santa's globe to reflect mankind's desire for this fundamental right. Explanatory text and attributions are on the back of the calendar.
