The Art of Beatrix Potter : Sketches, Paintings, and Illustrations Hardback

Edited by Eleanor Taylor, Emily Zach

Part of the The Art of... series

Description

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 watercolour landscapes and natural history illustrations-this monograph explores Potter's artistic process and reveals the places that inspired her timeless work. Organised 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.

A definitive volume on one of the world's most influential authors, a woman whose artistry deserves to be fully celebrated.
