Drawn To Nature, Gilbert White and the Artists

In Drawn to Nature, Simon Martin has gathered joyful and beautiful images of the extraordinary array of wildlife described by Gilbert White in his 1789 publication Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne. This fascinating account takes us from some of the earliest published depictions of birds and animals, to pioneering nature photography, wood-engravings of the 1920s and 30s, and contemporary illustrators such as Angie Lewin and Emily Sutton. The book also includes an introduction to the life of Gilbert White by Sir David Attenborough, an essay by Virginia Woolf, poems by modern and contemporary poets, and a jacket design by Mark Hearld.
