CAW Digitization of Norman Rockwell Photos

The Chicago Albumen Works has worked with the Norman Rockwell Museum on a variety of digitization projects including the documentation of Rockwell’s magazine cover illustrations and his advertising work. Our most recent project with the museum was the digitization of over 20,000 photographs as part of the museum’s digital experiences project.  These digital images provide greater accessibility for researchers and the general public to behind-the-scene images of the artist’s working method and his private life.
