Exploring the history behind the longest-running and arguably the most influential natural history series in the world, this investigation delves into the art archives of the New Naturalist books. With more than 100 volumes published over 60 years, this examination explains how the installments have risen to a level of collectability. Prints of awe-inspiring artwork are featured throughout, offering a unique insight into the methods of former artist Robert Gillmor, whose approach to each subject has revealed his distinctive style and craft. Findings from the Clifford and Rosemary Ellis archive are also discussed, providing considerable information on how the older covers were developed, approved or rejected, and proofed. Presenting a fascinating perspective of how these eminent designs came to be, this is an essential reference for those intrigued by the frantic workings behind a seemingly serene collection.
