Birds by Charley Harper - Book of Postcards / 30 oversized pull-out postcards, published by Pomegranate / ISBN 9780764953729.
Ever-popular artist Charley Harper held a special affinity for birds. Describing his method of depicting wildlife, which winnowed out all but the most important details, Harper once said, “When I look at a wildlife or nature subject, I don’t see the feathers in the wings; I just count the wings.” He asked viewers to “remember that I didn’t start out to paint a bird—the bird already existed. I started out to paint a picture of a bird, a picture which didn’t exist before I came along, a picture which gives me a chance to share with you my thoughts about the bird.” This book of postcards presents 30 of Harper’s beloved avian artworks.
