Charley Harper:
An Illustrated Life
Charley Harper:<br>An Illustrated Life
AMMO Books is honored to present this 
beautiful large format title as the 
definitive monograph of artist Charley 
Harper's six decade long career. Renowned 
New York based designer Todd Oldham 
rediscovered Charley's work in 2001, and 
collaborated closely with him, combing 
through his extensive archive to edit and 
design this stunning AMMO Books release. 

Charley Harper - An Illustrated Life, 
showcases his illustrations that appeared 
from 1950-1975 in the Ford Times magazines, 
as well as in books such as the beloved 
"The Giant Golden Book of Biology" in 
1961, "Betty Crocker's Dinner for Two" in 
1961, and "The Animal Kingdom" in 1968, 
among many others. 

His well loved book "Birds and Words", 
first published in 1974, is considered a 
classic. Remarkably, however, Charley's 
work has never before been published in one 
complete retrospective. Accordingly, this 
massive volume is the definitive Charley 
Harper book to have on your bookshelf!

Birds & Words
by Charley Harper

This lovely reissue of the highly collectible 1974 classic is a Charley Harper gem. AMMO Books has carefully restored all the images and reproduced Birds & Words in its entirety and in its original format. A book for every bird lover who knows there is more to birdwatching than measurements, range maps, flight patterns and lifetime lists. Birds & Words is a true reflection of Charley Harper, who was that special species of man with twinkling eyes and smile, with wit as infectiously keen and light-hearted as his paintings. Harper the humorist reads as captivating in the self- composed stories that accompany his serigraphs as Harper the artist. An active curiosity prodded him to constantly question nature. "What will happen", He asked "if a buzzard, which eats only dead meat, comes upon a possum, which plays dead when threatened? The answer has to be that the mild mannered marsupial will win his Purple Heart - possumously."

Birds & Words<br> by Charley Harper
A Tower of Giraffes
Book by Anna Wright

A drove of pigs, a romp of otters, an ostentation of peacocks, and a tower of giraffes... This clever book introduces young readers to some of the words we use to refer to animals in a group. The ink, watercolor, and fabric collage art is brightly colored and uniquely sets this fun book apart from the crowd. Each page presents information about an animal and its group behavior, such as how geese fly in a V-shape and honk to encourage the leaders, and that sometimes tens of thousand of flamingos meet up in one location. Young readers will have a great time and create a wellspring of new vocabulary words.
