The Golden Pleasure Book of Biology

Charley Harper is my favourite illustrator and my friend Tom made my day by sharing with me his copy of Charley Harper’s first commissioned publication “The Golden Pleasure book of Biology” 1961.  Brilliantly illustrated with opaque water colour, Haper made me fall in love with biology all over again with his simple lines, bold colour and minimalism. I will be on the hunt for my own copy.  To answer the question “If you were to pick a famous man dead or alive to take to dinner who would it be?” my response would be, Charley Harper. Thank you for the inspiration.

Enjoy his work, xm.
