Editorial Reviews

"This gorgeously reproduced overview of the work of American modernist Charley Harper is a labor of love from Todd Oldham. ... Oldham''s tribute to his hero (who died in 2007, at age 84) floats on the wings of these beautiful creatures and Harper''s expressive, one-of-a-kind talent." —NPR
