The world famous artwork of Beatrix Potter needs little introduction ? it is as beloved as the familiar children’s stories it illustrates. But few know of her work in the gardens and interiors of Hill Top, the farmhouse Potter purchased in 1905. The estate and surrounding scenery inspired many of Potter’s stories and illustrations, and this gorgeously illustrated book shows Potter’s homes and her magnificent gardens beside those drawings, revealing the real-life sources for Peter Rabbit and many other Potter classics. The book also includes letters and diary excerpts, further exploring the relationship between Potter’s home in the Lake District and her iconic artwork. For those fans of Potter who want to delve further into her aesthetic underpinnings, this intimate look into Potter’s private world is a must-have.
