Our friend Kev originally introduced us to Nigel Peake, who did the artwork for Coldcut’s ‘Sound Mirrors’ album (Kev’s the designer). His work is beautiful. I bought his book recently, ‘In The Wilds – drawings by Nigel Peake‘ published by Princeton Architectural Press.
Nigel Peake’s new book In The Wilds is a lovely collection of drawings about farms, fields, and birds, taken from childhood impressions and his life in a one-road Irish village, where he is allegedly mistaken for the postman. He trained as an architect Edinburgh University, winning a Silver Medal commendation by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for his thesis. All that attention to detail shows in the drawings he makes now.
Drag these gentle things over your tired eyes three times a day for best results.
