Thank you Killdeer and Goldfinch

We’ve been just dying for an excuse to share samples of Charley Harper’s mid-century fabulous artwork, and here it is. Please excuse our little indulgence and enjoy the brief diversion. We think it will be worth your while.

Harper was an illustrator and designer whose minimalist artwork centered on natural subjects, notably birds. He’s best known for illustrating The Giant Golden Book of Biology, but also provided artwork for National Park Service posters and other natural resource organizations, such regional parks, wildlife sanctuaries, nature centers and local Audubon Chapters. We stumbled upon Harper’s work awhile back when searching for information and images of Cliff Swallows and have been enchancted ever since with his whimsical representations of our local feathered friends.
