Charley Harper (August 4, 1922 – June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations. Born in Frenchton, West Virginia in 1922, Harper's upbringing on his family farm influenced his work to his last days. He left his farm home to study art at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and won the academy's first Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Scholarship

When Arthur Lougee asked me to paint some of our feathered friends, I took my first good look at birds as subject matter. I didn’t see scapulars, auriculars, and primaries, tail coverts, tarsi-none of that, Harper once said.

Charley Harper was an American original.

Charley Harper is renowned for his unique mid-century illustrations of the natural world. They get to take centre stage in this recently published book, Charley Harper's Animal Kingdom. Focusing solely on Harper's illustrations of flora and fauna, the book has been put together by the same team behind the mammoth tome about his work, An Illustrated Life, including the author Todd Oldham. In fact, they're billing this as the 'best of the rest' as it includes many unseen illustrations that were omitted from the earlier title due to lack of space.

  • As a Charley Harper fan, this book did not disappoint. The oversized edition (much wider than traditional hardcovers) has enough room on each page for appropriate negative space and the reproductions. It is well organized and a fine addition to a Harper collection.
    I ticked off a star for what I felt was the precarious binding of the book itself. In these wider, oversized editions, the spine tends to be under enormous pressure; I haven't yet seen a publisher address this problem satisfactorily. With this book, I could plainly see that the inside cover leaves would separate before long. In order to nip that in the bud, I ordered and applied strips of archival linen tape on the inside spine of both the front and back covers. It now feels a lot sturdier...

  • I discovered Charley Harper a couple of years ago though thinking back, I'm pretty sure I remember books from my youth that were probably illustrated by him. I previously bought the 'other' Todd Oldham book 'Charley Harper, an Illustrated Life'. I chose it primarily because it was less expensive and a friend had a copy so I was able to see it before I bought it. While I really do love that book, the overall book is smaller and many of the illustrations are presented two to four to a page (sort of like a catalog) and I really wanted to see the prints in a larger format. I finally decided to spring for this larger, more expensive book and I'm not disappointed. The lure of previously unpublished work is what drew me in.

    Most of the reviews I read raved about it and one rather dismal review completely panned the book based on the blurry and grainy presentation of some of the works. It is true, there are a some poor reproductions of some of the work, in some, the images are blurry in others it appears the you can see a printing screen pattern (a sort of dot matrix texture). I am assuming by the reference to some of the artwork having been located in archives from the companies for which the graphics were done, that perhaps the only examples that could be found were these poorer reproduction prints and not the original master artwork. While I wish these prints were better reproductions, I would rather be able to see a poor print than not see it at all.

    Criterion, a company that re-issues films considered to be milestones of film making, is very selective and in the past would only issue a classic film if a clean master could be found. It would be nice if more of the images in this book were also considered on the basis of finding the clean, original master prints and that is why I could not award this book five stars, however, as I said previously, I'm delighted to be able to see some of these rare Charley Harper designs at all, even if they aren't perfect examples.

  • If you like Charlie Harper, you like Charlie Harper, I think. I love the simple complexities of his artwork. A true genius. I did not want to put this book on a shelf where no one could see it. It needs to be left open. The inside pages contain the beauty. I placed it like a blanket at the foot of the bed where I can change to new pages each day. It feels very fun!

  • Wonderful, beautiful book. I bought it for my daughter who is too young for it now, but I can't wait until she is old enough to enjoy it.

  • I've always loved animals but Charley Harper's art make animals so much more alive in his portrayals. I would think that kids of all ages would be attracted to his art.

  • This book is my second one from Todd Oldham about Charley Harper. I discovered Charley's work while working with La-Z-Boy at a local photo studio. Thank you Todd for providing yet another interesting and visually stimulating book for the public. A beautifully printed and presented book!

  • FASTdelivery! Excellent book! Excellent book to add to the collection of Harper books!

  • I received this from my wonderful husband for Christmas this year -- what a treasure! The illustrations are breath-taking, and seeing so many new renderings all gathered in one gigantic book - it's almost sensory overload (but in a good way!). Thank you to Todd Oldham and Thank you to my husband!
