The studio moodboard for The Naturalist’s Handbook is full of history, nature and colour. Discover key elements of Sabina’s research here, and view some of the images which inspired her designs.


This collection references Victorian zoological and botanical illustrators such as John James Audubon, Maria Sibylla Merian and Albertus Seba, along with the courageous explorers who ventured into unknown lands in the hope of discovering new and exotic species. The collection also focuses on the Fraktur folk art movement in 19th century America; a movement started by Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania in the late 1700’s.

Below you can find the moodboard and a selection of relevant images.
