Publisher Comments:

Celebrated designer Todd Oldham opens another treasure trove of unseen and unpublished illustrations in the new AMMO Books release, "Charley Harper's Animal Kingdom." Todd has done it again by going deeper into Charley Harper's extensive archive to create the ultimate companion to "An Illustrated Life" and present the absolute best of Charley's previously hidden illustrations.

Ranging from bugs and birds to all creatures of land and sea from the bountiful imagination of the artist, animal lovers and fans of Charley alike will be thrilled with this stunning new collection. Featuring more than 300 previously unseen illustrations, "Charley Harper's Animal Kingdom" includes illustrations created during a span of more than sixty years and appeals to a wide range of audiences both young and old.

AMMO Books has published four different bestselling formats of "Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life." Charley and his work have been profiled in an array of media, including "CBS Sunday Morning" and dozens of international magazines and newspapers such as Dwell, The New York Times, and many others.

About the Author

Charley Harper was an American illustrator who worked from his studio in the woods near Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eighty-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.

Todd Oldham is an innovator of accessible design and the founder of Todd Oldham Studio, a multidisplinary design studio in New York City. Originally a fashion designer, Todd has hosted MTV's "House of Style." Todd's career has evolved to include all areas of design—from interior design, film, and photography to furniture, graphic art, and product design. Todd is also the author of several publications by AMMO Books, including "Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life," "Wayne White," "Kid Made Modern," and "Joan Jett."
