Norman Rockwell

Summer 1971 edition of "The Saturday Evening Post."

I've been visiting my folks in Richmond the past week, spending time with my sister. Mom pulled out some things for us to go through to see if we were interested in any of it including a stack of old books and magazines.

I am now in the possession of a Summer 1971 edition of The Saturday Evening Post featuring an interview with Norman Rockwell, the artist whose illustrations made The Post what it was. He was 79 years young at the time of the interview. The cover price in 1971 ... one dollar. To me ... priceless.
