Peter Rabbit - the most popular creation of Beatrix Potter, introduced in 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit', 1902. When she met Norman Warne, Potter was a 35 year old spinster. She had firm ideas about how she wanted her book to look, insisting it be small enough for little hands, that text and illustrations be on separate pages, and that the price be low.

Beatrix Potter - Bunnies in Winter  Helen Beatrix Potter (1866 – 1943) English author, illustrator, mycologist and conservationist  This watercolour is at the Victoria and Albert Museum, but isn't shown online. In the past they sold it on notecards. Very similar to her older cover drawing for "The Happy Pair." This one is much more winsome and a more mature paint
