Overview

This beautiful large-format title is the definitive monograph of artist Charley Harper's six-decade career. Renowned New York–based designer Todd Oldham rediscovered Charley's work in 2001, and collaborated closely with him, combing through his extensive archive to edit and design this stunning release.

Charley Harper is an American original who created his art from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 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 painted a bird, he didn't count all the feathers in the wings -- he just counted 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 1950-75 in the Ford Times magazines, as well as in books such as the beloved The Giant Golden Book of Biology (1961), Betty Crocker's Dinner for Two (1961), and The Animal Kingdom (1968), among many others. His well-loved book Birds and Words, 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!
