DescriptionThis beautiful and large format book is the definitive monograph of artist/illustrator Charley Harper's work, spanning his five decade career. Charley likes to say, that when he paints a bird, he doesn't count all the feathers in the wings - he just counts the wings. He reduces his subject to the simplest possible visual terms without losing its identity. Minimal realism, he calls it, and it has had a tremendous influence on designers and artists familiar with his work. Bringing his legacy to a wider audience, Ammo Books celebrates this singular talent as well as his sparse, yet colorful and graphic style, in this impressive title that comes complete with one of four different artist's prints, signed and numbered by both Charley Harper and Todd Oldham.
