On Beatrix Potter

Beatrix_potter_petter_rabbit_and_mrs_puddle_duck_by_oliviawaste-300
Another issue of the wonderful "Public Domain Review".  

In this edition Frank has contributed a marvelous piece on Beatrix Potter, and PD has enhanced it with the most charming photographs and illustrations.  

 I love his direction to look into the work itself to see the inner life of the writer and artist, including a childhood Potter managed to so fill so successfully with a link between the human and the natural world, it became her life's work and a gift for us all. Frank's childhood was full of the field life around his rural Ireland home. So there was a natural link. But for those of you, like me, less tied to the fields and woods, but still holding on to our Benjamin Bunny breakfast sets (and a stuffed Pigling Bland) from childhood, Potter's gift may also have personal resonance. 

 

Here it is. Enjoy!   http://publicdomainreview.org/2014/07/23/the-tale-of-beatrix-potter/
