Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature by Linda Lear

There is an alternate cover to 0141003103

Peter Rabbit, Mr. McGregor, and many other Beatrix Potter characters remain in the hearts of millions. However, though Potter is a household name around the world, few know the woman behind the illustrations. Her personal life, including a romantic relationship with her publisher, Norman Warne, and her significant achievements outside of childrens literature remain largely unknown. In Linda Lears enchanting new biography, we get the life story of this incredible, funny, and independent woman. As one of the first female naturalists in the world, Potter brought the beauty and importance of nature back into the imagination at a time when plunder was more popular than preservation. Through her art she sought to encourage conservation and change the world. With never before seen illustrations and intimate detail, Lear goes beyond our perrenial fascination with Potter as a writer and illustrator of childrens books, and delves deeply into the life of a most unusual and gifted woman--one whose art was timeless, and whose generosity left an indelible imprint on the countryside.

To make up for the lack of company she began to sketch and make up stories about her pet rabbits and her parents seeing her talent paid for art lessons. The Warnes did not have much hope it would sell many copies; they actually gave the project to their youngest brother, Norman, as a kind of test for his first project. However, Norman proved to be a good choice. He warmed to both the book and Beatrix. He was determined to make a success of the book and developed a good working relationship with Beatrix as they pored over the individual details of the book.

Potter had an isolated childhood, separate from other children, and educated by governesses. However, her numerous pets and holidays in the Lake District, culminated in a love of landscape, flora and fauna. These became the subjects of her paintings, and literary works. Although prevented from higher education by society's attitudes to women at the time, Potter's study and watercolors of fungi led to her being widely respected in the field of mycology. She also had a successful career in farming and breeding, based in Hill Top Farm in a village in the Lake District. Potter wrote over 30 books, the best known being her 24 children's tales.
