"Mad Men" gets the Rockwell treatment on cover of The Saturday Evening Post

Written by Maria Sciullo on .

In anticipation of "Mad Men's" seventh and (*sob*) final season, The Saturday Evening Post is giving AMC's hit the Norman Rockwell treatment.

image002 1The magazine's March/April issue features some of the characters fans have loved/hated as the employees of Sterling/Cooper and their families lived, loved, grew, imploded and fab-fashioned their ways through the 1960s.

In the artwork, Don, Betty, Joan, Pete, Roger and Peggy are being observed, appropriately, by series creator Matthew Weiner. He's the one literally hanging in the background as a window washer. (The original is below)

Cover artist Sharif Tarabay is a master of the Rockwell look. Besides a feature on "Mad Men," the Post also examines the "new" look of vintage 1960s-era art in advertising.

"Mad Men" returns Sunday, April 13 and will have two, seven-episode parts to its last season. Break out the Hershey bars.
