Charley Harper, An Illustrated Life

This was my birthday present from Jon, the definitive monograph of Charley Harper’s work, edited by Todd Oldham. I’ve had this on my wish list ever since it was released, and was so surprised and thrilled when I opened it last week particularly by the fact that he remembered I wanted it so badly. I’m such a fan of Charley Harper’s work and see myself going back again and again to the pages of this book for inspiration. Thank you, Jon. I appreciate you paying attention.
