The Golden Book of Biology by Charley Harper. Cincinnati-based American modernist artist Charley Harper was born in Frenchton, West Virginia on August 4, 1922. Charley Harper was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations. During his career, Charley Harper illustrated numerous books, notably The Golden Book of Biology.
