Excellent birds

... etc. CBS News Sunday Morning yesterday had a lovely piece about Charley Harper, whose name had been unknown to me but whose illustrations I recall seeing with some frequency when I was a kid. I'm sure that, lost amongst the detritus of my basement, are some books or periodicals with his images. Luckily, Todd Oldham has made it his mission to accumulate Harper's artwork into a volume ... and apparently into his own designs (presumably $ to go to Harper's family) ... and apparently some of it for La-Z-Boy, which I would not have guessed. (Crumbs, I can't find the image that I had in mind. If I find it in future, I'll pop it in here.)
