This is an even smaller and more affordable version of the masterwork about Charley Harper by Todd Oldham.
Charley Harper is an American original who created his art from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio - until his death on June 10, 2007, at the age of 84. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic, and often humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people alike. Charley liked to say, that when he paints a bird, he doesn't count all the feathers in the wings - he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continues to resonate and inspire his admirers.
Charley Harper - An Illustrated Life showcases his illustrations that appeared from 1950-1975 in the Ford Times magazines, as well as in books such as the beloved The Giant Golden Book of Biology in 1961, Betty Crocker's Dinner for Two in 1961, and The Animal Kingdom in 1968, among many others. His well loved book Brds & Wrds first published in 1974, is considered a classic. Remarkably, however, Charley's work has never before been published in one complete retrospective. Accordingly, this massive volume is the definitive Charley Harper book to have on your bookshelf!
