Beatrix Potter: At Home in the Lake District Susan Denyer
As an artist and story-teller Beatrix Potter is world-famous. Of no less importance is her work in protecting some of the finest examples of the Lake District's landscapes and in creating romantic interiors and a beautiful garden at Hill Top, the farmhouse she bought at Near Sawrey in 1905. Her picturesque house and the breathtaking scenery inspired many of Beatrix's stories and drawings. This book looks at the relationship between the Lake District and her work and includes numerous extracts from her letters and diaries, as well as atmospheric photographs from the Beatrix Potter archive.
