Charley Harper – An Illustrated Life

This book is definitely on my wish list. Thanks to New York-based designer Todd Oldham and Ammo Books for putting together this definitive collection of the late artist Charley Harper’s 60-year-long career. Harper is best known for his graphic, geometric depictions of wildlife–and an inspiration to me.

Since this large format book, Charley Harper — An Illustrated Life is a bit steep for my budget ($200), I will be happy to own a copy of his new board book, Charley Harper ABC’s or the classic beauty, Birds and Words (first published in 1974).

  1. OMG I love Charley Harper so much. How gorgeous are his illustrations! And Todd Oldham put together the book, that’s perfect.

    Amazon’s got the book for $126 – better start saving my pennies!
