Charley Harper Coloring Book


Product Description

Casebound book (8 3/4 x 11 1/4 in.) with a special lay-flat binding and sturdy, flexible cover, with 50 images to color. Each illustration is reproduced as a full-page black line drawing and as a full-color drawing. Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed.

“Inside are 50 pages of Harper's playful critters, with reproductions of his full-color illustrations on the inside of the front and back covers. We've also included a blank page at the end so you, like Harper, can sketch the world around you.”

“With painstaking care, the graphic designers at Pomegranate Communications have traced by hand the outlines of over fifty classic Charley Harper images. Thus, every complex image has been carefully extracted and redrawn from the original painting housed in the Harper studio archives. Each flower, beak, wing, leaf, fin, leg, and head has been retrieved and prepared to provide you with many hours and days of enjoyable coloring. If you wish, follow the reproductions of Charley's actual full-color images and employ them as your guide. Or, use creative license and make up your own color combinations. I just want you to relax and have fun! Happy coloring.” 

-Brett Harper, son of Charley and Edie Harper
