A stunningly beautiful book of the works of Charley Harper, an astoundingly prolific and accomplished artist. Don't miss the in-depth interview by Todd Oldham, designer and super-fan. Mr. Harper's graphic artistry achieves excellence. His application of color is masterful. His observation of, then distillation of, nature (birds in particular) is a joyful case study in top tier artistry. Sit back and drink in the wonderful world of Charley Harper; I dare you not to become a fan.
