Norman Rockwell’s The Saturday Evening Post: America’s best loved Art and Illustration… An amazing collection of original covers of The Saturday Evening Post including Top 25 Norman Rockwell and the Rockwell Cover Art Gallery.
Founded in 1728, The Saturday Evening Post is America’s oldest magazine. Purchased in 1897 by Cyrus H. Curtis, The Saturday Evening Post rose to the coveted status of “America’s Magazine” by showcasing the best American writers, artists and illustrators of the Twentieth Century. Curtis paid $1,000 for the magazine, which had origins back to 1728 and Benjamin Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette. Starting with a handful of worn type, some paper, and a modest circulation of 2,000, he published the first issue under the imprint of Curtis Publishing and brought the magazine’s circulation to more than a million by 1908.
PS.: two notes – the first gallery, with the Rockwell’s covers of 1916 – 1919, it wasn’t available. Second note: cats lovers must see cat theme gallery.
