We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
While growing up, I eagerly awaited the arrival of the Saturday Evening Post, if only for a Rockwell cover. His attention to detail was astonishing to me. You could look at his work a thousand times and always discover a nuance never before seen.
Rockwell and other illustrators (such as Maxfield Parrish) worked with mechanical reproduction in mind. Which means that the originals did not always use long-lasting materials and techniques. That makes this price even more amazing.
