Nigel Peake draws from memory. And what a fantastic tint his memory washes over country landscapes. In The Wilds features hundreds of previously unpublished illustrations of the Irish countryside from the artist whose clients include Hermes, Eastpak, and Dwell magazine. His linear pencil and ink drawings and beautifully muted watercolors are infused with fresh air, colors, patterns and other sensations distilled from nature and rural architecture. For all its naturalness, In The Wilds also has the magical power to transfer its reader to a quieter and simpler place, somewhere between a rustic barn and a beckoning lake.
