By: Charley Harper (Illustrator)
8 pages, booklet, 170 reusable paper stickers
During his lifetime, artist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) painted lots and lots of birds. He was raised on a farm in West Virginia, and as a kid he explored the woods and fields near his home, sketching the critters he saw. When he grew up, he developed a unique artistic style. Instead of recording every small detail of his wild subjects, he simplified each animal to its most basic elements. Rather than drawing every feather on a bird, for example, he just drew bold, colorful shapes for the wings, body, beak, and tail. And he always highlighted each animal's most familiar features – the blur of a hummingbird's beating wings, for example, or the bright red crest of a cardinal.
Fifty different birds drawn by Charley Harper are included in this sticker book. Charley wanted his art to show us the amazing variety in nature and how all living things are dependent on each other. Maybe these stickers will inspire you to learn more about the birds that Charley loved so much. Happy stickering!
