365 Nature – A connection with nature, every day.

Book Design

365 Nature was conceived, designed and art-directed by Design by Nature. We approached Hardie Grant Publishing with the concept of a beautiful and earthy book that would encourage people to reconnect with nature in their everyday lives. 

The book features 80 step-by-step projects and activities, from planting seeds and building a birdhouse to fashioning a dreamcatcher or learning to read the clouds. The concept and content were spearheaded by our Creative Director, Anna Carlile, who led a community of talented makers, including cooks, photographers, writers and gardeners in its development. 

365 Nature has since been published worldwide in multiple countries, including the UK, the US, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, Sweden and Germany.

“Anna’s experience in eco-friendly design means she has an excellent feel for nature-based projects that will appeal to a wide audience, and this was abundantly clear in her book, 365 Nature. Featuring 52 projects organised by the seasons, this book quickly became a bestseller with translations into several languages including Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish and Korean.”
