In the Wilds by Nigel Peake is a Collection of Retro Rural Images

In the Wilds, by illustrator Nigel Peake, is a fantastic collection of hand-drawn images that depict rural farm life in a warm and nostalgic glow. The images that Nigel Peake drew for the book are simple in their overall design and ornate in their detail. The warm watercolor images would work equally well on a coffe table or as a gift.

With urban areas growing in global importance, these images serve as a reminder of a past that we are quickly losing. Nigel Peake is able to capture the simplicity and beauty of rural life through images—an estranged reality for most urbanites.

Nigel Peake knows what it is like to live the rural life: the illustrator lives in a village with only one road.
