Beatrix Potter

Snatching moments when I can between working, writing and family life, I've been reading Linda Lear's book, an autobiography of Beatrix Potter.


Beatrix Potter, the twentieth century's most beloved children's writer and illustrator, created books that will forever conjure nature for millions. Yet though she is a household name around the world, her personal life and her other significant achievements remain largely unknown. This remarkable new biography is a voyage of discovery into the story of an extraordinary woman. At a time when plunder was more popular than preservation, she brought nature back into the English imagination. "Beatrix Potter: A Life In Nature" reveals a strong, humorous and independent woman, whose art was timeless, and whose generosity left an indelible imprint on the countryside.

It's a large book but very interestng and I've learnt a lot I didn't know about Beatrix Potter.

If you are interested in this magical and incrediblly talented artist, then do read this book.
