About the Author
Todd Oldham's studio is a multifaceted design studio for film, photography, furniture, interior decor, books, and even floral arrangements. He lives in New York City and in eastern Pennsylvania.

Charley Harper was an American illustrator who worked from his studio in the woods near Cincinnati, Ohio, until his death in 2007, at the age of eighty-four. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic, and often-humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects, and people alike. Charley liked to say that when he paints a bird, he doesn't count all the feathers in the wings he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continue to resonate and inspire his admirers.
