Boy Reading Adventure Story
The Saturday Evening Post, November 10, 1923
by Norman Rockwell
Collection of George Lucas
Boy Reading Adventure Story is about the power of the written word to transport a child to a distant land and time. George Lucas commented, "It's a painting celebrating literature, the magic that happens when you read a story, and the story comes alive for you." When working on STAR WARS, he said, "I realized that you could still sit and dream about exotic lands and strange creatures."
