In the Wilds...

Princeton Architectural Press sent over a copy of In the Wilds by Nigel Peake and I am madly in love with it. Here's what they have to say about it:
    "In the Wilds is a collection of artist Nigel Peake's hand-drawn observations of rural life. From the trees, fields, lakes, and rolling hills that define the country landscape, to the farm houses, tractors, fences, and telegraph poles that build it, Peake's obsessively detailed pencil and ink drawings and beautifully muted watercolors capture the slow moving rhythm of his surroundings. In a time when everyone seems to be seeking relief from the fast pace of everyday life, In the Wilds offers an escape to a countryside as timeless as it is idyllic."
I've posted Nigel Peake's work before. His book, Sheds, is still one of my all-time favorites, and I was happy to see In the Wilds earn a spot right next to it. The drawings are beautiful and, considering the fact that we're spending most of our days planning our escape to the countryside, the book came at the perfect time. You can pick up a copy here. I highly recommend that you do.
