The Art of Beatrix Potter: Sketches, Paintings, and Illustrations
is the perfect companion to our June Adventure Workshop Beatrix Potter: Quilt Tales from the English Lakes. This beautifully illustrated, hardcover book is sure to jumpstart your creative engine as you prepare to sew your very own mini-quilt (inspired by the original Potter Wedding Quilt made for Beatrix Potter’s parents Helen and Rupert in 1863). 

About the Book

Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter's birth, this magnificent collection celebrates the artist behind The Tale of Peter Rabbit and numerous other beloved children's books. Brimming with famous images and rarely seen gems—ranging from character sketches and notebook pages to watercolor landscapes and natural history illustrations—this monograph explores Potter's artistic process and reveals the places that inspired her timeless work. Organized geographically and featuring more than 200 images from the artist's oeuvre, The Art of Beatrix Potter includes illuminating essays by Potter scholar Linda Lear, illustration historian Steven Heller, and children's book illustrator Eleanor Taylor. It is the definitive volume on one of the world's most influential authors, a woman whose artistry, until now, has not been fully celebrated.
