Well then... Have I got the book for you!!!
I originally was going to put this book in my art series, (would post mid January), but as I started going through it I thought no.... I cannot wait that long. This book is WAY to beautiful and nice to let it wait that long. Beatrix Potter did such lovely work. I will be referring to it later on in the Art Book Series, but for now, let me tell you about this lovely hardcover book that tells us all about The Art of Beatrix Potter.
Five main sections covering
1. Becoming Beatrix Potter
2. London and the South Coast
4. The Lake District
5. Wales and Beyond
As I went through this book I discovered reams upon reams of gorgeous drawings. I met all the characters from her book, discovering that:
There is SO much I could tell you about this book, just so very much, but I wanted to tell you about the fungi pictures. YES.. I like fungi, I love taking pictures of them, and as I was browsing through this book look at what I discovered!!!!
Did you that Miss Potter did up a whole bunch of drawings on fungus..and she did them really well? I was thoroughly impressed and learned so much! :)
That was only one part of the book though, scattered throughout were all her characters that we know and love, Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin and all the rest.
For anyone who treasures the work of Beatrix Potter and wants to know the woman behind the books and how she developed her talent, this book is a perfect fit.
