What a fantastic little book! Originally published in 1974, this collection of prints and commentary by Charles Harper was long out of print, but now it has been revived in a new edition with a warm introduction by Todd Oldham.

With a style known as 'minimal realism,' Harper captures the essence of his avian subjects without getting lost in the details. Witty remarks and observations pair nicely with his art.

I would challenge anyone who claims to loathe modern art to dislike the work of Charles Harper. Examples of Harper's art along with a delightful review may be found here:
