Charley Harper


Product Description
Product Details


Charley Harper died in 2007 after a 50-year career as a Cincinnati-based artist and illustrator. He developed a signature style using bright, saturated colors and geometric simplification to depict birds, fish, animals, and insects that are immediately recognizable as both the creatures being depicted and drawings by Charley Harper. He drew illustrations for Ford Times magazine and designed several murals but is best known for illustrating nature books, such as Giant Golden Book of Biology, and designing posters, usually for parks, zoos, and wildlife sanctuaries. Designer Oldham selected the images for this book and conducted a biographical and philosophical interview with Harper, a transcript of which is presented and translated into French, Italian, German, and Spanish. The book includes a large selection of reproduced work by Harper, covering all major aspects of his output. Verdict The tone is frankly admiring, and the cheerful images should have widespread appeal among a vast variety of library patrons. A colorful, inviting book for browsing, with no art knowledge necessary.-Kathryn Wekselman, MLn, Cincinnati Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
