Publisher Description

Beatrix Potter's work reflects her interest in animals, natural history and the environment. She liked to imagine her characters in her favourite, natural places, so she created a special world for Peter Rabbit.

Before the full-colour edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published by Frederick Warne & Co., Potter arranged a private printing of the book with Strangeways & Sons in 1901. It was illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, and it is these illustrations which have been adapted for this special gift edition of the tale.

Potter's drawings have been combined with a variety of patterns that take inspiration from the natural world in which the tale is set.

The botanical patterns reflect Potter's illustrations, and the soft, natural palette and block-printing effect refers back to the Golden Age of children's illustrated books.

A perfect gift for fans of Beatrix Potter.

Author Biography

Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
