Description



Book Synopsis



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.



Review Quotes




"Cozy up with Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck in The Art of Beatrix Potter. This new collection, focusing on more than 200 of the British author and brilliant naturalist's watercolors and sketches, is an enchanting tour through the nooks and crannies Potter plumbed for her tales. Which, yes, you'll want to read all over again." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Emily Zach's book The Art of Beatrix Potter shows the beloved children's author was far more than a tweedy Victorian, wandering the meadows. She was an artist of astonishing range." --The Seattle Times

"Families fond of the delicate watercolors and droll English country stories of Beatrix Potter will find much to enchant in The Art of Beatrix Potter, an elegant assortment of her sketches, paintings and illustrations. Among the delights: Potter's sketch in watercolor of the dramatic swoop of the Newlands Valley, the same parti-colored landscape that little Lucie trots through in The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle." --The Wall Street Journal

"These sketches, illos, and paintings from the Peter Rabbit author add a rich new dimension to her legacy." --Entertainment Weekly
