Meet the Author

Charley Harper was an American original who created his art from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eight-four. 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 continue to resonate and inspire his admirers.

I gave this book to my mother for Christmas. She has appreciated Harper's art work for years plus she is a bird enthusiast--perfect combination. She read it cover to cover!

Charley Harpur's paintings and accompanying descriptions well illustrate his artistic talents and his wit. This is a thoroughly entertaining collection of his work whether you enjoy contemporary art, birds, or laughing out loud. I bought a several of these books to give as gifts, and put it on my own "wish list", too!
