Things We Love: Charley Harper

From the July 12, 2012 edition

Perhaps illustrator Charley Harper’s minimal realistic depictions of Mother Nature’s greatest hits have attracted a new generation and reach of graphic design-influenced fans. Reed Arts frame shop in Grandview has a fantastic selection of prints and legacy projects, and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles recently released a specialty license plate in honor of the now-deceased Cincinnati artist. The plates are $25, and more than half of its cost benefits the Glen Helen Ecology Institute. Do it for the birds.
