The Shedworker's Bookshelf - Sheds by Nigel Peake

Sheds is a slim 32-pager by Nigel Peake from Analogue Books. Peake is described on their site as an "illustrator/artist/designer and all-round bad speller" and his book was "inspired by a fascination with primitive structures, travels in China and a recent cycling trip around Europe drawing barns, sheds and grain silos". More information about him at the site but I particularly liked this list of his influences:
"bridges, pens, different paper, colour, churches and cathedrals, notebooks, lists, benches, trees, magicians, beaches, sheds, silence, National Geographics, misunderstanding things, typing, freshly cut fields, graveyards, projections, stones and bark and night time."
You can win a copy of this fine book over at Shedblog so nip across now.
