Charley...

We were browsing our local bookstore last week and found this awesome Charley Harper coloring book. I wasn't planning to buy anything (OK, that's a lie. I was planning to buy expensive European magazines, but they didn't have the issues I wanted.), but I scooped it right up because I'd never seen it before. The pages are really thick and, I'm happy to report, are withstanding heavy-fisted marker coloring from a certain 3-year-old. It was put out by AMMO Books, but you can also find a copy here.

My boyfriend is currently half way through getting a Charley Harper inspired tattoo of a Jay.

His illustrations are so great.

We LOVE our Charley Harper coloring book -- the pages are incredibly thick, and great for pattern-coloring. We have an "art lamp" in our childrens' rooms, and often a page from this book has been the feature.

That has been on my wish list forever. I might as well give up and buy it for myself.

No one ever bought my daughter those Charley Harper matching cards. I'd feel a little silly buying them for myself now. But I might if no one is looking.

Yay for Charley Harper! I live in Cincinnati and we are lucky enough go have quite a bit of Harper art around town including a mural in the federal building:

we bought this coloring book two christmases ago...at old navy! yes..they had a big charley harper christmas! however, i refuse to let the kids color in it! ;)
my idea is to make copies of each page first...then dish them out one by one. i will keep my faves and then frame them and put them in the kids' room! instant kids art that is mom decor friendly! ;)

we have a different Charley Harper coloring book--contains an array of animals. I love these coloring books because they really cause my son to slow down and color and work with all that detail--and the finished pages are always fantastic.

I am a total sucker for arty coloring/sticker/activity books. We own absurd amounts--meanwhile all my son wants is another batman coloring book.
