We recently found hidden in our archives a small reserve of one of our most cherished books. (It’s amazing what you find when you are packing for a move!) Published in 1995, this full-color book features every cover of The Saturday Evening Post from 1899-1969 — more than 3,500 of them.
You’ll find J.C. Leyendecker’s New Year’s babies, Harrison Fisher’s portraits of beautiful women, and Sarah Stilwell-Weber’s enchanting little girls, as well as Constantine Alajalov’s urbane sophisticates, N.C. Wyeth’s landscapes, and all 323 Norman Rockwell covers. Combining social history with the golden age of American illustration and graphic design, The Post’s covers captured the heart and soul of America.
