I actually bought this coloring book not for my children, but for me and my husband. We are big Charley Harper fans, and I thought it would be fun for us to sit together and color when the kids are in bed (maybe make it a date? gotta be creative with small kids and a limited budget for going out and babysitters).
I love that they have perforated each page so you can easily tear it out to color it or display it. I think my 2 year old son is jealous he doesn’t get to color in this book!
“Ah, to draw like Charley Harper. The longtime Cincinnatian took his greatest creative cues from nature, transforming the vibrant environment into geometric interpretations of flora and fauna. Here, a collection of his featured friends is laid out in black and white, waiting for a helping hand to fill in the hues.” — DWELL Magazine
Wonderful coloring book. Charley Harper is a unique and interesting artist. The coloring book is challenging, but not so overly detailed like some adult coloring books that feel almost impossible. The completed pictures could even be framed.
Each drawing is printed on white paper on one side to help keep markers from bleeding through to another image. Each page is also perforated at the top for easy removal to place your young artist’s artwork on the wall or refrigerator!
I was so excited to find a Charly Harper coloring book! I use his artwork in my classes for symmetry.
Charley Harper Coloring Book, Vol. 1 Paperback – January, 2014
Charley Harper was an American original who created his art from his home studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eight-four. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic, and often humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people alike. Charley liked to say that when he paints a bird, he doesn’t count all the feathers in the wings he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continue to resonate and inspire his admirers.

This is a lovely coloring book. I’m an adult and a fan of Charley Harper and this is a nice way to “play” with his images. My only complaint — the paper is thin, so if you use markers or paint — the kinds of things that give you the rich color his images call out for — you will get bleeding onto the next page.
Easily fixed with an insert… that’s my only quibble. Otherwise, very nice and much better than most coloring books if you’re looking for a something for a child.
Beautiful pictures of animals! Fun and interesting facts about them! Great present for your little ones!
I’m obsessed with Charley Harper and his “minimal realism”, and am very pleased to have such an easy way to explore these lines and deceptively simple shapes. His obvious mastery of realism is even more apparent when you try to reproduce even the simplest of birds! You may capture the shapes and proportions, but the charm and whimsy are much more elusive.
All ages can appreciate the difference between basic graphic design and true artistry. I plan to utilize this book for teaching toddlers and practicing my own critical eye. The quality of the paper is very nice, as is the case with every licensed Harper item I’ve purchased: the Pomegranate calendars and jigsaw puzzles especially.
I plan to research each bird and attempt to render them accurately with my Prismacolor colored pencils and watercolors. Printed on only one side! Hooray!
For more than four decades, Charley Harper provided art collectors with unique views of the natural world. In a style that Harper called “minimal realism,” the artist created stylized drawings and paintings that captured the essence of his subjects using the fewest possible elements.

Soft cover book with staple binding.48 pages with 22 images to colorSize: 8Â½ x 11 in.Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed.Painting complex creatures with simplicity, and without losing their true character, was a signature skill of Charley Harper (American, 1922 2007).
He painted animals from all continents, both wild and domestic, and created now famous posters for organizations that care for and protect animals. He combined his talent with a respect for the world s creatures to create artwork that has delighted animal lovers for decades.
Harper grew up on a farm in West Virginia and studied at the Art Students League of New York and the Art Academy of Cincinnati. In 1947 Harper and his wife, Edie, went on a six-month journey through the United States.
While at the Grand Canyon, he understood that realism couldn t capture its immensity. Harper decided he must reduce what he saw to its simplest forms a decision that led directly to his self-described minimal realist style.
His classic animal artwork that uses clear geometric forms is perfect for a set of coloring books.Inside are twenty-two pages of Charley Harper s playful animals, with his full-color illustrations featured on the inside of the front and back covers.
Don t forget about the blank pages at the end we ve left them there for you to draw the animals you find in your world.
