Beatrix Potter

The author and illustrator Beatrix Potter is known for her charming children’s books that have delighted generations.

Her career as an illustrator and storyteller began in 1902 with The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The book was an instant hit with the public and she went on to create an average of two books a year until 1910.

The success of her books gave her financial independence, allowing her to buy property in the Lake District. In 1913 Beatrix married William Heelis, a Lakeland solicitor, and settled in Sawrey permanently. 

Her focus shifted to farming, sheep breeding and land conservation. When she died in 1943 she left over 4,000 acres of land and 15 farms to the nation. 

We are delighted to offer a small selection of Beatrix Potter’s iconic illustrations as Official Collector’s Limited Edition prints.
