The Tale of Peter Rabbit: Gift Edition

Beatrix Potter, Simon Mugford (Edited by), Adam Wardle (Cover/Jacket Illustrator)

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.
