The Tale of Peter Rabbit: Gift Edition Summary


The Tale of Peter Rabbit: Gift Edition by Beatrix Potter

The perfect gift for a Christening or first birthday to introduce the smallest readers to the magical world of Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit.

Beatrix Potter was an advocate for nature and beautiful landscapes, and this is reflected in her illustrations of Peter's world.

Before the full-colour edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published, Potter arranged a private printing of the book 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.

About Beatrix Potter


Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.

A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
