Essay by Sara Caswell-Pearce. Introduction 
and commentary by Brett Harper.

prints from both artists, from their early 
art school days until 1960, when Charley

images. The artists command of a wide range 
of styles from realism to abstraction to 
cubismis not only impressive, it informs the 
path each took to arrive at their individual 
techniques. The subjects they chose to depict 
are just as diverse. Charleys World War II 
scenes, portraits, and cartoons created while 
serving in Europe as a private first class 
are especially poignant.

Brett Harper provides a biographical 
introduction that follows his parents from 
art school to commercial and fine art 
success, and his commentary on specific 
artworks provides valuable insight. Art 
critic Sara Caswell-Pearces essay focuses on 
the development of the Harper's artistic 
prowess, while Chip Doyle, a family friend, 
tells his story of discovering long-lost 
early works.

Harper Ever After presents great talent in 
its formative years. Longtime Harper fans and 
collectors will appreciate never-before-seen 
artwork and come away with a new appreciation 
of the Harpers mature work, post-1960.

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.
