Charley Harper—Birducopia Puzzle, 1,000 Pieces
Charley Harper (1922–2007) was a modernist painter and graphic designer known for his stylized and abstract illustrations of birds, animals, fish, and insects. He gained acclaim as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s with the publication of The Golden Book of Biology which featured his interpretations of a wide range of the earth’s creatures. The response to his book illustrations was so positive, it led to his successful silkscreen printmaking career. Birds were his favorite subject matter and Harper’s images have appeared in nature-oriented magazines and on posters, as well as in a number of books including The Animal Kingdom, Birds & Words, and Beguiled by the Wild: The Art of Charley Harper. During his career, Harper designed over 50 posters for non-profit conservation groups, nature centers and zoos, United States national parks and monuments, and international wildlife sanctuaries and biosphere preserves.
