Journal 5 - Rockwell

This book is named Rockwell after Artist Norman Rockwell. In the 1940's and 1950's, Strathmore ran a series of advertisements that featured "Prominent Artist Users of Strathmore". Mr. Rockwell was among those prominent artists featured in the ads and is quotes saying "As long as I can remember, I have used and been devoted to Strathmore No. 71 Drawing."
