Charley Harper x2

Charles Harper's Birds and Words and Charley Harper's ABC. Both by Charley Harper, with numerous colour illustrations, published by Ammo Books. Found via Apartment Therapy.

I love Charley Harper and am so excited about these two books out in the spring! (you can pre-order them at amazon for example).

Charles Harper's Birds and Words was first published in 1974 and is now being re-issued. It 's seen as a classic and "pairs his beautiful paintings with poetic commentary." A wonderful wonderful book.

Charley Harper's ABC is a children's book that (not surprisingly perhaps) gives you beautiful illustrations from A to Z. Definitely not just for the kids though!
