R.I.P. Charley Harper (1922-2007)
What an eye Charley Harper had! And what style! Best known for his mid-century-modernist wildlife illustrations, which appeared in myriad books, magazines, posters, and prints, the Cincinnati-based artist most visibly plied his craft in the pages of The Golden Book of Biology (1962), as well as a series of posters for the U.S. National Park Service, the National Audubon Society, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and other nature-related organizations.
