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.


Nigel Peake is both a maker and an illustrator. With a background in architecture, he creates drawings of the everyday things that surrounds him. He leads a quiet life where the interest is on what is on his walk that day. Most of his days are spent working on commissioned work or self related projects/books. In addition, he provides illustrations for a range of publications as well as high-profile commercial projects, including Hermes, Ninja Tunes, the Royal Horticultural Society, Habitat, and Dwell magazine. He is the author of three previous books including Sheds, and Maps, and he has exhibited his drawings around the world.

He holds an MARCH from the University of Edinburgh and received a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Silver Medal commendation for his architectural thesis exploring borderlands in Istanbul in 2005.
