"Attention midcentury modern parents: The glorious work of Charley Harper, a visionary American illustrator, is here in board book format to complement your toddler's Oeuf bouncer and Dwell crib. Close-up extracts from classic Harper drawings are artfully used to illustrate colors...certain to mesmerize all ages." —The New York Times Book Review
For over four decades, Charley Harper (1922-2007) provided art collectors with unique views of the natural world. In a style that Charley called "minimal realism," the artist created stylized drawings and paintings that captured the essence of his subjects using the fewest possible elements. He explained, "I don't count the feathers; I just count the wings."
