"As an artist and storyteller, Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), the creator of Peter Rabbit, is famous throughout the world. Few of her admirers in America, however, are aware of the important role she played in protecting some of England's most beautiful landscapes and in creating romantic interiors and a lovely garden at Hill Top, the farmhouse she bought in the Lake District in 1905. Her picturesque house and the breathtaking scenery around it inspired many of her stories and drawings. This book is the first to look at the intimate connection between the English countryside and Potter's work." "Illustrated by superb photographs, the book offers a room-by-room tour of Hill Top. The seventeenth-century farmhouse, which remains as Beatrix Potter left it, fulfilled her lifelong dream of owning a house full of old furniture and beautiful objects. Here, the author's unforgettable watercolors are shown alongside photographs of their real-life settings."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
