Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Charley Harper (1922 — 2007), the American painter recently 'rediscovered' by Todd Oldham, has something of a cult following. Reproduced in color on the back cover of this oversize paperback, 32 images show off his punchy graphic style, his adventurous palette and eye for visual rhythm. In something like spinning gold into straw, the same 32 images are rendered only in black outlines inside the book. This exercise succeeds particularly well with Harper's work: artists, sketchers and dabblers will find that the pronounced shapes and flat perspectives of Harper's compositions depend almost wholly on color for their impact. The artistically inclined will enjoy hands-on testing of color theory; everyone else can just have fun. Perforations make the pages easy to tear out, too. All ages." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A coloring book that gracefully translates Charley Harper's illustrations of animals into black and white line work. In this lovely coloring book, young artists can create their own colorful originals using American illustrator Charley Harper's black and white line drawings of birds and other animals. Printed on white paper on one side only, each drawing is able to peel off and instantly stick up on the wall or refrigerator. The back cover shows Harper's original illustrations in full color.
