Painting complex creatures with simplicity, and without losing their true character, was a signature skill of Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007). He painted animals from all continents, both wild and domestic, and created now famous posters for organizations that care for and protect animals. He combined his talent with a respect for the world’s creatures to create artwork that has delighted animal lovers for decades.

Harper grew up on a farm in West Virginia and studied at the Art Students League of New York and the Art Academy of Cincinnati. In 1947 Harper and his wife, Edie, went on a six-month journey through the United States. While at the Grand Canyon, he understood that realism couldn’t capture its immensity. Harper decided he must reduce what he saw to its simplest forms—a decision that led directly to his self-described minimal realist style. His classic animal artwork that uses clear geometric forms is perfect for a set of coloring books.

Inside are twenty-two pages of Charley Harper’s playful animals, with his full-color illustrations featured on the inside of the front and back covers. Don’t forget about the blank pages at the end—we’ve left them there for you to draw the animals you find in your world.

A Sample of Selections:

  1. The sea otter loves to float around and eat, and sometimes it uses tools like rocks to pry open its favorite shellfish. The name of this painting is Otterly Delicious.
  2. The plump quail likes to stay low, foraging and building its nest on the ground.
  3. The lucky little ladybug is pretty smart, too: its shining red wings and black spots tell predators to stay away. The name of this painting is Lucky Ladybug.
  4. The brilliant feathers and prideful tail of the orange-bellied trogon can be spotted in the humid forest canopies of Panama and Costa Rica.
  5. Don’t feed the bears! But black bears do enjoy munching on berries they find in the wild. The name of this painting is Blackbeary Jam.

      SHIPPING

      CANADA & USA 


      PARCEL SHIPPING 

      We've just implemented a new system of rates to allow us to ship more of the bigger, bulkier & more fragile items we carry in store and in some cases, to lower your cost of shipping. We now offer parcel shipping based on weight/size of the parcel, so based on what is in your cart, you will only see the shipping options available to you. Our parcel system is 


      Small Parcel 0.1lb to 4.9lb 

      Medium Parcel 5lb to 9.9lb 

      Large Parcel 10lb & up 


      We do not use the exact weight of products to determine these rates. For example, if you order a small jar of something that is extremely heavy, but you only order that, you would only pay for Small Parcel Shipping. Conversely, if you order a basket, which is very light but very big, you will pay for Large Parcel Shipping.


      Our shipping rates are also based on distance, with shipping to our province and neighbouring provinces being lower than shipping to British Columbia. 


      GREETING CARD SHIPPING 

      Along with our parcel shipping, we also offer greeting card shipping. These rates are also based on weight, with each card having a weight of 0.1lb. Our rates to Canada are 

       

      1 card = $1 

      2 - 3 cards = $2 

      4 - 5 cards = $3 

      5+ cards = Small Parcel 

      Rates to the USA are slightly higher. 


      WHY DID WE IMPLEMENT THIS SYSTEM? 

      We've been shipping out parcels through our shop for over 8 years now, so we know the true cost of it. We are not a big company, so we do not get the heavily discounted rates that large, box stores can procure. We do get a discount on shipping, which is why we're able to offer rates that are cheaper than if you were to purchase the postage yourself but still, nearly every time we ship a parcel to someone, we have lost money. We don't mind losing $0.50 or $1.00 here and there - that's simply the cost of doing business. But the larger amounts we lose are simply not sustainable. It takes money from our shop and keeping money in our shop means that we get to source better and more unique products for you to buy. It means we get to constantly improve. We are not in this business to make money on shipping, so we still keep our prices as low as we can and we don't build in any extra pricing to cover the costs of the materials we use to ship your items. We know it always sucks to pay for something intangible but shipping is a crazily complex thing that definitely does deserve to have a reasonable cost. 

       

      This is still something we're working on and improving, so please let us know if you think the shipping rate seems off for what you're ordering and we'll make sure everything looks right. 

       

      REST OF THE WORLD 

      We continue to offer world wide shipping. We use carrier calculated rates, which are the true cost to ship the package to you.

      RETURN POLICY

      Our return policy is based on all of the things we hate about other return policies. We don't believe you should spend your money on something that you don't love or something that doesn't work as it should. We have two types of returns: 

       

      CHANGED YOUR MIND? 

      Maybe you bought it and then once you got it home, you realized the color was wrong or the smell is just the worst or it really just doesn't fit. Whatever is it, we give you 90 days to bring or send back what you bought for a refund or exchange. We only ask that whatever you return is still in good condition, so that we can resell it. We firmly believe you can change your mind but at the same time, we don't want to lose money because of it. 


      DID IT BREAK? 

      Oh no, we're so sorry! It's just a fact of production that some goods made might not last to do the job you bought them for. If you get an item home and it breaks in the normal course of using it, we will replace or refund it at anytime. This means that if the shirt you bought rips at the seams after you wash it, return it. But this also means that if you buy a doormat and the image wears off after a season or two, it's not returnable. We do not accept returns on items damaged from normal wear or tear or misuse.
