A Tower of Giraffes
Book by Anna Wright
PP9781580897075
A Tower of Giraffes<br>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.

Charley Harper:
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!
