Flora & Fauna
While the worlds of industry and technology are slowly catching up with the engineering marvels of nature via biomimicry, artists and designers have known from the beginning that natural imagery has a primal, irresistible appeal. Flora & Fauna showcases the very best work inspired by the natural world in the fields of identity and branding, design and fashion from creators around the world. However easy it might be to forget one’s connection to nature, these familiar images appeal to viewers through their complex interweaving lines, pleasing color palettes, and sense of vitality. Designers and illustrators looking to imbue their work with life will find ample inspiration among these more than 120 examples of plant- and animal-themed designs across a variety of production techniques and illustration styles.
Flora & Fauna’s design features Swiss binding and coptic stitch details. This unique bookbinding technique, where the cover is only attached to the back of the book, is a hallmark of craftsmanship that complements the high-quality and artistry of the projects featured. It also allows for the book to lie flat once it is opened, so that readers can enjoy every page without risking damage to the spine.
