Did you know that Beatrix Potter was not just a children's book illustrator? She also was an excellent botanical artist--these are two small samples of her work. I just ordered several books about her art and life: "Miss Potter," "A Victorian Naturalist," and "Beatrix Potter: A life in Nature". (The last two books are not available through Amazon--I found them at Abebooks.com.) The DVD of "Miss Potter" (movie) is coming out later this month--I did not see it in the theatre, so I will definitely be renting it.
