Author: Beatrix Potter
Illustrated edition (Oct 19, 2006)
For the fans of Beatrix Potter's books, this is a true gem! With excerpts from Beatrix's diaries, we discover her world through letters, watercolor paintings, photographs, maps, and even a Peter Rabbit Board Game!
Here are some pictures from the book. Click on the pictures to see them in higher resolution.
|An album with several black and white photos are attached to one of the page. Here is Miss Potter and her dog Spot.|
|An excerpt from Potter's own diaries and letters, and her report card from 1885, when she was 18 years old.|
|Paintings and sketches from Potter are shown very often in this book. On the bottom right is a watercolor painting of the view from her window at Bolton Gardens. On the upper right is a drawing she made for her brother.|
|One of my favorite pages is an envelope with a letter folded inside the envelope. It was the letter she wrote to Noel Moore and her story of Peter Rabbit with her original drawings.|
|Nestled within the book's back cover is a small book with a cardboard cover, similar to Potter's first Privately printed edition of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit".|
There are many more surprises to this book and I don't regret at all getting it! This one is a keeper!
