During his long and prolific career, Charley Harper illustrated numerous books, most notably The Golden Book of Biology, magazines such as Ford Times, as well as many prints, posters, and other works. His work focused on nature, with birds as a frequent subject. Harper often created works for nature-based organizations, among them the National Park Service, Cincinnati Zoo, Cincinnati Nature Center, Hamilton County Park District, and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Pennsylvania.

Harper was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations. He called his style “minimal realism,” capturing the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. Using graphic shapes and bold colors, Harper distilled and simplified complex elements. His nature-oriented artwork is often contrasted with the realism of John James Audubon and the simplicity found in Inuit Art.

Cincinnati-based Fabulous Frames & Art is a family-owned business and the world’s largest dealer in the work of Charley Harper, including books, serigraphs, lithographs, giclee prints, and posters. You can shop online for these items, or stop by one of our Cincinnati-area locations to see our selection of Charley Harper prints and accessories in person!
