Projects 20 | The Nature Library

A display of The Nature Library, a reference library and reading space connecting people to the land, sky and sea.

As human beings we often see ourselves as separate from the natural world. But, just like the tides and the hills, we are part of nature and there has never been a more important time to reconnect. The books within The Nature Library aim to do just that. Whether by painting dazzling landscapes, introducing us to flourishing flora and intelligent fauna, or exploring the challenges they each face we begin to see — really see — the wonders of our planet one word at a time.

Among the shelves of The Nature Library you’ll encounter the classic and the contemporary, fiction and non-fiction, memoir, poetry, children’s books and many other branches of nature writing. We hope you find something that takes you somewhere new — to the edge of the sea, into the mountain or to the top of the tallest tree.

This presentation has been postponed due to the temporary closure of the Stills premises. During lockdown, The Nature Library is sharing daily pages from its book collection on Instagram and Twitter @thenaturelib and  www.thenaturelibrary.com
