Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life

The brightly colored minimalist but modernist world created by Charley Harper, in book illustration and advertisement, is ubiquitis with twentieth century modernism.  This volume provides overwhelming evidence of the artist's craft in folio form; the animals of his most famous work The Giant Golden Book of Biology leap from the oversize pages.  Designer Todd Oldham provides a short introduction, and an interview with the artist.  Candid photographs of the artist at work, fit between his illustrations comfortably.    N6537.H358A4 2007
