This week’s guest post is Julie form the fantastic Analogue bookshop and gallery in Edinburgh. Analogue is a an art and design book shop that Julie and Russell opened 2001 and expanded 2 years ago to include a gallery space. They publish a series of zines called Running Amok and have recently brought out their first book, ‘Sheds’ by Nigel Peake.
‘Nigel first walked into our shop about 6 years ago with a bunch of drawings under his arm and we have had the pleasure on working with him on many projects since. Sheds’ contains 32 pages of recent work, inspired by a fascination with primitive structures. Nigel’s style is characterised by amazing detail and beautifully muted colours. We think it’s a beautiful book and hope you do too.’
