Charley Harper - An Illustrated Life


Something cool for your coffee table, an art investment and just a great example of period illustration - thats what you get with Charley Harper - An Illustrated Life.

Compiled by New York designer Todd Oldham, this is the definitive collection of Harper's work, unique mid-century illustrations of nature, animals, insects and indeed people from a six-decade career. In particular, it showcases his illustrations that appeared from 1950-1975 in the Ford Times magazines, as well as in books such as The Giant Golden Book of Biology (1961), Betty Crocker’s Dinner for Two (1961), The Animal Kingdom (1968) and Birds and Words (1974).

Sadly, Charley Harper died this year aged 84, but did get to see this project through before his death. As such, AMMO Books is offering Charley Harper – An Illustrated Life as both a large format standard book or as a luxurious limited edition, personally signed by Charley Harper and Todd Oldham.

It's priced from $200 (around £100).
