Nigel Peake's book Maps, a follow up to his book Sheds, has recently been released and can be found on his big cartel shop or through the ever amazing and fantastic publisher Analogue books . In this book Nigel documents his many travels:
Documenting small time adventures and excursions outwith a mile radius from where I call home. From train rides facing backwards, to crammed bus rides in tiny hill-top towns, to bike rides through the backyards of Europe. Records of the vast, unyielding concrete miles of Shanghai, to the paths between mountains and forests in late night French countryside to the old paint splattered wooden floor in London that I sleep on from time to time. In addition to this there are also some imaginings of possible places - cities built from train tunnels and underground arches to invisible concrete cities.
I just got a copy in the mail and it's, well, pretty close to perfect. It's bound beautifully. The detail in the book is tops. Its quite unique a book that I think anyone fascinated with maps, detail, travel and/or of course Nigel would truly love. If you aren't familiar with Nigel's work, he works mainly in water color and pen and makes the medium look effortless, which it most definitely is not. Total talent. You can see pictures of the book launch at my very favorite, overseas bookstore Analogue books.
