Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of ""Charles Harper's Birds & Words,"" AMMO Books is proud to present this large-format reissue of the 1974 classic. This exquisite edition is reproduced in its entirety with all carefully restored images.

BIRDS & WORDS is the ideal book for Charley Harper fans and every bird lover who knows there is more to bird watching than measurements, range maps, flight patterns, and lifetime lists. This book is a true reflection of Charley Harper, who was that special species of man with twinkling eyes and smile, and wit as infectiously keen and lighthearted as his paintings.

About the Author

Charley Harper was an American original who created his art from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eight-four. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic, and often humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people alike. Charley liked to say that when he paints a bird, he doesn't count all the feathers in the wings—he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continue to resonate and inspire his admirers.
