Beatrix Potter Prints

Beatrix Potter’s illustrations and stories about Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck and other much-loved characters were published over 100 years ago yet continue to delight children and adults today. Born in 1866 in London, Beatrix lived a sheltered life and her constant companions were her pet animals which inspired her books. ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was published in 1902 and she produced on average two books a year until 1910. She settled in the Lake District and died in 1943, leaving over 4,000 acres of land and 15 farms to the nation.
