The Ouija Board by Norman Rockwell appeared on the May 1, 1920 cover of The Saturday Evening Post. It was the 29th cover illustrated by Rockwell for the magazine, whose first sale to the publisher occurred in 1916. The original oil on canvas was 26 x 22 inches and is privately owned.

“The board is set, the pieces are moving. We come to it at last…
The great battle of our time.” — Gandalf

An interesting article — The Strange and Mysterious History of the Ouija Board: Tool of the devil, harmless family game…or fascinating glimpse into the non-conscious mind? — by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie can be read here.

If you’ve a mind to be more open to the mysteries of the Ouija, I would recommend reading Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board by J. Edward Cornelius, available via amazon in paperback or kindle.
