Charley Harper – An Illustrated Life

I have been drooling over this book online for the past couple of weeks. It is a 420 page monograph spanning the six decade long career of the artist and illustrator Charley Harper. His images sing with lovely and lyrical graphic minimalism while focusing on his favorite subject – nature. Harper exposes you to amazing landscapes, fish, birds, and various wild critters. All of them have such life and personality.

The book was created by designer Todd Oldham who collaborated with Harper finishing the book shortly before Harper died in June of this year. Snap up either the standard edition book or the limited edition book with silkscreened print online today. A great way to remember an inspiring artist.
