Organised geographically and featuring more than 200 images from the artist’s oeuvre, The Art of Beatrix Potter includes illuminating essays by Potter scholar Linda Lear, illustration historian Steven Heller, and children’s book illustrator Eleanor Taylor. A definitive volume on one of the world’s most influential authors, a woman whose artistry deserves to be fully celebrated.
