Renowned designer Todd Oldham rediscovered Charley Harper's work in 2001, and collaborated closely with him, combing through his extensive archive to edit and design this stunning and definitive monograph.
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, "Birds and Words," first published in 1974, is considered a classic.


About the Artist

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 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.
