This book is for anyone interested in animals, birds, art, illustration or the work of Charley Harper.
It's a wonderful introduction to his many talents e.g. mosaic murals, paintings, posters etc.
A large and very heavy resource book with lots of vivid examples of his work the wit and humour he used to introduce biological concepts(student text books)are beautiful and look very retro now! Would of enjoyed biology more if i had those illustrations to look at!
His simple use of colour, shape and line are really exciting and refreshing what a talent he was!
A wonderful conversation at the beginning with the authour gives you an incite into what made this man tick!
This book is worth every penny and i found something new each time i look through it.
