A very special gift edition of the classic tale with a new design that reflects Beatrix Potter's love of the natural world.
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.
