Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life


Original price - $29.95 Charley Harper was an American original. For more than six decades, he painted colorful and graphic illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, until he passed away in 2007 at the age of eighty-four. Renowned New York–based designer Todd Oldham rediscovered Harper’s work in 2001, and collaborated closely with him in the ensuing years; combing through his extensive archive to edit and design this stunning monograph. This new “mini” edition is a popularly priced, beautiful tribute to Harper’s singular style, which he referred to as Minimal Realism.
