The Art of Çharley Harper

2016 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Art (Adult Nonfiction)

This genre-defying spectacle of color, form, and humor looks like an art book but acts the part of a playful, kid-friendly graphic novel masquerading as a field guide to animals. A conservationist and maestro of modernism and environmental art, Charley Harper called his work minimal realism, but his chipmunks, cardinals, chickadees, ladybugs, and other critters are mesmerizing in a magically realistic way. Not to forget Harper’s witty, paragraph-length captions accompanying each of the 110 illustrations.
