Details: Norman Rockwell sold his first illustration to The Saturday Evening Post in 1916. Over the next 50 years he produced more than 300 covers for that magazine, a body of work that helped shape 20th-century American identity and that elevated Rockwell (American, 1894–1978) to the status of cultural icon. This calendar presents 12 reproductions of Rockwell's paintings for covers, each one evidence of the old saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
