Overview

To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before.

Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Meet the Author

Beatrix Potter was born to a wealthy family in London and was raised by governesses instead of attending school with other children. She loved animals and had many pets, including rabbits. Beatrix spent many long holidays in the country and began to sketch and then watercolor animals, plants and landscapes.
She studied art in the late 1870s at the National Art Training School and her first commercial success was selling art used in greeting cards.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit began as a letter she wrote and illustrated to the children of one of her former governesses. Beatrix later transformed it into a book, which she published privately.
The enchanting story was published in 1902 by Frederich Warne & Co. and readers everywhere were captivated by the tale of a mischievous bunny.
Beatrix Potter went on to write more than twenty children's stories. She used the proceeds from her books to buy Hill Top Farm and other nearby land to preserve the unique hill country landscape. She died on December 22nd, 1943 at her home at age 77, leaving almost all her property to the National Trust. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now constitutes the Lake District National Park. Potter's books continue to sell throughout the world in many languages with her stories being retold in song, film, ballet, and animation, and her life depicted in a feature film and television film.
