Artist and animal-lover Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) was raised on a farm in West Virginia. As a kid he would go exploring in the woods and fields near his home, taking along a pen and paper to sketch the critters he came across. When he grew up, he developed a unique artistic style. Instead of trying to capture every small detail of his wild subjects, he would simplify each animal down to its most basic elements. Rather than drawing every feather on a bird, for example, he would just draw bold, colorful shapes for the wings, body, beak, and tail. And he always highlighted each animal’s most familiar features—the big bill of a pelican, for example, or the masked face of a raccoon.
The 67 animals in this sticker book all come from Charley’s painting Tree of Life (shown inside the front cover), which depicts 102 different plants and animals; Charley wanted to show us the amazing variety in nature and how all living things are dependent upon each other. Perhaps these stickers will inspire you to learn more about the animal world that Charley loved so much. Happy stickering!

In 1988, Jeff and Greg Danz had a dream. They would open a store that they would want to shop. So they bought an empty turn of the century building in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The brothers spent a year restoring the building and developing the concept for what would become Zandbroz Variety. When the doors opened in May of 1989, Zandbroz was a bookstore with an eclectic mix of other inventory, an old fashioned soda fountain and coffee bar. The store was a hit and a couple of years later a second location was opened in Fargo, ND. Zandbroz Variety started in a world before Barnes and Noble, Starbucks and internet shopping were part of the landscape. That of course all changed and so too Zandbroz has evolved and changed –THIRTY years later and we are still here!
