  • Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve, Costa Rica, 1999 Charley Harper designed more than 50 posters for various natural areas, parks, and conservation organizations, each celebrating a special part of our natural world in the unmistakable and vibrant style Harper called "minimal realism." Monteverde promotes the beautiful Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve in Costa Rica, home to an astonishing array of flora and fauna, including the sacred quetzal (depicted in the center of the poster) and the world’s largest number of orchids. Some 90 migratory bird species stop there. Enjoy an exotic armchair travel excursion while putting together this lively 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.

    Midcentury modernist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) portrayed the natural world with heart and humor. In vivid colors and simple shapes, his cardinals, ladybugs, and clever critters have become icons of wildlife art. His illustrations were published in magazines and books, notably Ford Times and The Giant Golden Book of Biology. A longtime conservationist, Harper created posters for more than 50 nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His US National Park Service posters—massive, requiring a year each to paint—showcase delightful depictions of entire ecosystems in a style he defined as “minimal realism.” In his adopted hometown of Cincinnati, his public works are the legacy of an artist truly beguiled by the wild, one whose art was a quiet catalyst for ecological action.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.

      Great puzzle

      I love Charley Harper puzzles, especially the brighter colored ones. They are not easy but you can always tell the horizontal from the vertical. They offer just the right level of challenge for me. And I love the cute little creatures hidden throughout.

      This puzzle is beautiful and there is a wide variety of shapes to the pieces, unlike some other puzzles. It's very colorful; some parts are easy, others are challenging, so it's a nice mix. I plan to buy more puzzles based on Charley Harper.
