The art -

Charley Harper (1922-2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters, and book illustrations.

Home and family, comfort and sustenance—what does “nesting” mean to you? For wildlife artist Charley Harper, it might have called to mind a rose-breasted grosbeak bringing a bug to its nest full of baby birds. Or an eastern meadowlark watching over her eggs in a grassland hideaway. Or an indigo bunting singing a (hopeful!) dinner theme song to a caterpillar within beak’s reach of its leafy home. In his colorful Minimal Realist style, Harper opened a window on the world of birds, giving folks a peek into their nesting behaviors. Maybe your heart sings at the thought of dinners with loved ones in a home built of twigs. Or maybe you’d rather just lounge on your mid-century modern loveseat and catch up on correspondence. This notecard set’s four images of “Harper happynest” will bring cheer to all.

Contains five each of the following images: Indigo Bunting, Red-eyed Vireos, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Eastern Meadowlark
